Discipline

Discipline is an integral part of the learning process. To develop self-control, a student must be trained to bridle emotions and impulses, to live in harmony with others, to respect family traditions, to keep the laws of the country and to obey the commandments of God.

  • All students shall be in the school premises at 8.15 am, 5 minutes before the morning bell and taking part in the solemn morning assembly in an orderly and respectful manner.
  • In the afternoon, students should be in their classrooms at the first bell and maintain silence. Classes will commence at the first bell.
  • Each student must bring their Students’ Academic Planner to school every day and have it with them in every class.
  • The school expects students to be polite, friendly and well behaved in and outside the school. They should be respectful to their elders and teachers, and considerate to their juniors; honest and truthful at all times.
  • Students shall keep silence and decorum in the classrooms and corridors. If they should go to another classroom they should move silently in a line and return after class within 5 min.
  • Students going for optional and swimming are expected to reach back within 5 min. of commencement of their next class. They are not allowed to loiter around unnecessarily. If found loitering disciplinary action will be initiated.
  • Students shall not leave their classrooms or enter other classrooms without permission.
  • Students are not allowed to enter teacher’s staff room without permission or in the absence of any teacher. Only class leaders are allowed to enter by permission.
  • Speaking in English is compulsory at the school, in the bus and while waiting at the bus-stop to board the bus.
  • The school premises and classrooms must be kept neat and tidy.
  • Any damage caused to the property of the school or of other students must be reported to the Principal and will have to be compensated.
  • Students shall be responsible for the safe custody of their belonging. It is suggested that the students’ name and class be inscribed on all articles such as uniforms, shoes, lunch boxes, swim kits, umbrellas etc.
  • Lost articles deposited in the School Office/Reception in the Main Block/the Headmistress’ Office in the L.P Block must be claimed within a month.
  • The school is a plastic free zone and does not promote students bringing sweets on their birthdays. If they wish to do so, they may bring sweets without their plastic wrappers.
  • Every student shall endeavour to keep up the high standard of the school by excelling in studies, good manners and deportment/personal conduct.
  • Politeness and courtesy in speech and conduct as well as cleanliness and grace of person are to be cultivated and cherished.
  • Students are expected to behave with dignity outside the school premises also. Any activities of the student outside the school premises or in public places, which may harm the name, reputation and discipline of the School will be addressed and disciplinary action will be initiated if found necessary.
  • While wearing the school uniform, no student must engage in behaviour or associations detrimental to the moral tone, values and goodwill of the school. Strict disciplinary action will be initiated against the student found engaging in the same.
  • Students are discouraged from carrying too much money or any expensive articles to school.

  • All students are sincerely exhorted to cultivate the habit of morning and evening prayer. Catholic students are specially advised to assist regularly at the Holy Mass and frequent the sacraments and thus be witness to Christ in their daily lives. Catholic parents would do well to encourage their children in this matter.
  • Money should not be lent or borrowed from among students. No articles may be exchanged with other students.
  • Whenever students are permitted to wear casual clothes, they must be modestly and suitably attired for school.

Disciplinary Measures

The School chooses to focus on positive behaviour. However, we do apply appropriate disciplinary measures when necessary.

  • Written Intimation – We believe in keeping the parents promptly informed of positive as well as negative behavioural changes observed in the students from time to time.
  • Counselling – Any kind of emotional or behavioural problem, or academic backwardness may be discussed in person as and when required, in an informal and conducive atmosphere.
  • Conference – A conference will be called to inform parents of inappropriate behaviour of their wards inspite of repeated warnings, with suggestions for parental action and support.

The School reserves the right to suspend, expel or permanently exclude a student whose diligence and progress in academics is steadily unsatisfactory inspite of repeated warnings or whose conduct is harmful to other students and the moral tone of the school.

Parental Responsibility

The active co-operation of the parents is an essential pre-requisite for the welfare of the students. Parents are advised to

  • Check the Student’s Academic Planner daily and sign teacher’s remarks if any within the prescribed time.
  • Respond to circulars and other communication from the school promptly.
  • Supervise the child’s daily lessons.
  • Ensure that the child has adequate hours of study at home and completes all assignments.
  • Encourage the child to participate in all co-curricular activities and school functions.
  • Ensure the child is punctual.
  • Take pride in sending the child to school neatly turned out.
  • Attend Open-House Meetings to get an update on the student’s academic progress and conduct.
  • Return the Answer sheets and Report Card duly signed within the prescribed time.
  • Intimate any change of phone number or address to the school promptly.
  • Participation in talks or seminars arranged by school authorities is compulsory to help and guide parents in fulfilling their parental responsibility in the best possible manner.
  • Make sure that the student (class XI and XII) attends remedial classes as and when a teacher feels it is required to improve the student’s performance. Parents are requested to see that their wards avail themselves of this opportunity.

The attitudes and habits listed below are important elements that are definitely essential in order to maintain stability within the classroom. Furthermore, they must be corrected in order for your child to develop his/her maximum potential.

  • Excessive talking
