Code of conduct

Reason Respect Responsibility

Your main aim in school is to achieve the best possible standard of academic work in accordance with your ability.
This means that you have an obligation to:

  • be well-disciplined and attentive in class so that each lesson is a productive experience.
  • be respectful of your teachers and fellow students by avoiding any disruption of their efforts.
  • complete your homework neatly, diligently and on time.
  • respond to suggestions for improvement and to ask if you are not sure about anything.

As a member of the school community you are expected to conduct yourself in such a way as to promote its reputation.
This means that you have an obligation to:

  • be smart in your appearance at all times, wearing your uniform correctly.
  • be well behaved on the way to and from school.
  • be considerate of others by avoiding unnecessarily noisy and boisterous behaviour, by avoiding teasing that can easily become bullying, and by helping others who need your assistance and friendship.
  • You have an obligation to respect all property that is not yours by:-
  • not interfering with the belongings of others, even in fun.
  • placing all litter in the bins provided for that purpose.
  • taking care of the school buildings and equipment that is provided for the benefit of all.

The school aims to provide opportunities for you to develop as a mature person with a well- rounded and confident personality and a proper sense of personal values.
You can work towards this goal by:

  • taking a full and active part in the various extra-curricular activities.
  • offering help to your teachers and fellow students whenever required and by accepting any responsibilities that are available.
  • reviewing your overall performance as objectively as possible at regular intervals in order to find ways in which you can improve.
  • seeking advice and guidance when you encounter special personal difficulties.

Parents and students are kindly asked to sign the enclosed declaration form (one per student). The signed declaration should be handed in to the Class Tutor on the first day of the scholastic year.
