Rules of Discipline

Whenever individuals live together, discipline is necessary and, this is especially true for an educational institution. This discipline is formative, not repressive. It leads the student to develop self control, which is the essence of a well ordered and successful life. Therefore, the school requires of its students to conform to certain regulations, aimed at the growth of the entire school, and more so, of the individual student.

  1. Every student should carry with him/her daily the school diary.
  2. Children must be in their respective class rooms at least ten minutes before the time fixed for the assembly to commence.
  3. All pupils are expected to be present for assembly during which they pray together.
  4. No child is permitted to leave the school premises without the permission of the Principal, which will be granted only at the written request of the parents.
  5. On school days and for all functions children should wear the school uniform. Children who come to class without the school uniform must bring a note of excuse from their parents or else they will be sent home. In winter, the sweater should be simple, without any design on it. Children are not allowed to wear jackets in school. They are allowed to wear blazers as per the colour of the uniform.
