Standard of Conduct

A major aim of this school is to foster Christian character in the lives of our students. We believe that attention to conduct and dress are important in the development of these traits.The following guidelines are to help students set high standards of personal appearance and behaviour expected of them as students at this school.

Students are expected to speak in an appropriate manner and show courtesy and respect at all times. Examples of this include:
  • Addressing people by their known and proper names
  • Addressing adults by their appropriate title 
  • Always showing gratitude and thankfulness 
  • Complimenting and acknowledging each other whenever possible 
  • Speaking to others with grace
  • Welcoming guests openly.

“Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how to talk to one another.” – Galatians 4 v 6

 Students are expected to behave in a self-disciplined and considerate manner at all times. Examples of this include:
  • Following and obeying all school rules and procedures
  • Being diligent and conscientious in their work
  • Being kind and considerate to one another
  • Looking after their own and other’s property 
  • Being friendly and helpful 
  • Treating others as they would like to be treated 

“Live in a manner that is worthy of the Lord, pleasing Him in every respect, bearing fruit in every good work.” – Colossians 1 v 10

All students are expected to have a positive and caring attitude. Examples of this include:
  • Knowing that God loves them
  • Knowing that they are of great value 
  • Knowing that they can be successful in whatever they dedicate themselves to 
  • Knowing that their teachers and this school have their best interests at heart 
  • Encouraging, affirming, and being thoughtful to others.

“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus…” – Philippians 2 v 3-5

Students are expected to develop and maintain high personal standards. Throughout their tenure at the school, all students are considered ambassadors, representing the school wherever they go. We expect them to maintain standards that are in keeping with the aims of our school, even outside of regular school hours (this includes social media). At all times, they are to abstain from smoking, drinking alcohol, using illegal drugs, indecent language, and profanity, and strive to be above reproach.

Students are expected to maintain a respectful attitude towards their parents, teachers, and all those who are put in charge of them.

 
We expect prompt and respectful obedience. Examples include: 
  • Being teachable and open to counsel and correction 
  • Being respectful and quick to obey 
  • Being loyal, supportive, and submissive

“Obey your leaders, and submit to them; for they keep watch over your souls, as those who will give an account.” – Hebrews 13 v 17

Students are expected to maintain the loving and caring environment and atmosphere of our school. They are expected to treat others with dignity and honour and to be encouraging and helpful to one another. Hurtful or derogatory teasing, bullying, and other negative actions will not be tolerated. Exclusive boy/girl relationships are considered a distraction from the focus of studies and are discouraged.

“Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.” – 1 Timothy 4 v 12
