Students Discipline

General

The affairs of the school shall be so conducted as to promote self-discipline leading to decent and orderly behaviour to maintain a high moral in the institution and to build-up traditions that all good Public Schools cherish.

The observance of rules of discipline and good behaviour shall be a pre-condition to a student’s continuance in the school. In the event of serious breach of discipline by a student, if the Principal is convinced that the continuance of the student in the school is likely to be detrimental to the general tenor or discipline of the school, he/she may expel him/her or recommend his/her transfer to a special school where arrangements exist to correct delinquents or to reform the hardened offenders. This will be done with the approval of the Chairman.
