  • The pupils are answerable to the School Authorities not only for their conduct in the school but also for their general behaviour outside. Anyone found or reported indulging in misconduct within or outside the school are liable for disciplinary action.
  • Attending the School well dressed and strictly in school uniform is obligatory. Violation of this rule is a sufficient reason for the expulsion of the student from the school. No student will be allowed to enter the school premises without dressed in prescribed uniform.
  • Any kind of damage done in the school premises must be made good by the concerned personally or collectively, as the case may be.
  • No books, newspapers, periodicals, other objects etc can be brought to the school without the principal's permission.

Notes

  • The Rules does not prevent the principal from refusing admission in the new session, for adequate reasons, to a student who was on the rolls in the previous session.
  • Children must speak English in the school campus.
  • All pupils must posses a copy of the school calendar, which is to be brought on all working days.
  • Latecomers and absentees from school will not be admitted to the class without the principal's written permission.
  • Every student is expected to be on time daily for the Morning Assembly invariably with the school calendar in their hands.
  • Habitual late comers are liable to be sent back to their homes in the absence of a written explanation from their parents or guardians.
  • No leave of absence shall be granted, except on written applications from parents, and that too only for valid reasons. The school accepts no responsibility, if a child is obliged to return home during school hours. Mere sending of a leave application is not sufficient; the sanction of leave must be obtained.
  • The pupils are not allowed to visit the staff Rooms.
  • Fines may be imposed by the principal for irregularity, indiscipline or damage to the school property.
  • The pupils are not allowed to leave the school premises during recess.
  • The school authorities may exercise their right to refuse readmission to a student who fail to return to classes within 3 days after the vacations without prior sanction of leave.
  • Parents and guardians are therefore earnestly requested to co-operate with the school authorities by sending the children invariably to the school on the reopening day strictly, unless a written permission for extension of the leave has previously been obtained. Normally such permissions shall not be granted, save for reasons of very grave nature.
  • In case of absence due to illness of three or more days, such information should be submitted to the Principal and the student will be allowed to rejoin the classes only on production of a Medical Certificate to the effect obtained from doctors in the government service, not below the rank of Chief Physician or Surgeon only. In case of doubt, the school may insist on the child being examined by the Civil Surgeon or the School Doctor.
  • If a student continues to be absent for a month or more, without the previous written permission of the principal, his/her name will be struck off from the rolls, and in case he/she is allowed to rejoin, a readmission fee will be charged.
  • Irregular attendance, frequent failure to obtain good in conduct, habitual lack of interest and prolonged or intermittent illness, behavior detrimental to the discipline and the moral tone of the School, repeated failure in tests or examinations and insubordination are sufficient reasons, singularly or collectively, to expel students guilty of such laxity or misdemeanor, even without any notice of warning.
  • The school authorities are neither liable nor responsible for the students' loss of money, books, articles of clothing etc. The students themselves are expected to safeguard their own belongings.
  • Lost articles found in the school are to be handed over to the Principal's Office.
  • Parents are strictly forbidden to interview their children or their teachers in the class, without the permission of the principal. The second Saturday of the month may be considered visitor's day when they can meet the teachers.
  • No student shall be allowed to be taken away from the class by anybody without an application from the parents or guardians.
  • a. The principal may punish a student according to the manner of the offence, e.g. by detention after school hours, or by expulsion from the institution, without assigning any reason.
