Disciplinary Matters

The school believes that good discipline is an important factor to help create positive school with a conducive environment for our students. While we try our best to teach and instil self-discipline, we seek the understanding of parents in the event that should students violate the school rules and there is a need for disciplinary actions to be taken. 

Note: When a student has been issued a Warning Letter, his/her conduct grade will be ‘Fair’ or ‘Poor’.

All offences are referred to the Disciplinary Board which decides on the consequences. Punishment meted out to the student depends on the severity of the offence. These can be in the form of:
• Detention
• Corrective Work
• Suspension
• Corporal Punishment
Thereafter, the errant student(s) will be counselled.

Serious offences include :
• Being late for school consistently (after 7.30 am)

• Cheating in tests/assessments
• Improper attire
• Open defiance
