CODEOFBEHAVIOUR
The school has a comprehensive code of behaviour which outlines school rules, regulations, sanctions and procedures. This code of behaviour is signed up to by each student before they enter the school. The school also has a detailed policy on bullying. Our aim is to encourage students to develop respect for themselves, parents / guardians, fellow students, teachers and the community in general. We endeavour to provide an environment which enables students to develop into mature, responsible and caring adults.
