Rules Of Conduct And Discipline

Home Secondary Students Rules Of Conduct And Discipline


Teaching and learning occur most efficiently in a climate of order. Courteous, considerate behaviour is required of all students in the school premises at all times not only for their benefit but of others as well. The administration and teaching staff at J.J. Academy High School will use the necessary means to ensure that an environment conducive to learning and safety is maintained. Disciplinary action will be taken against those who disrupt this environment or break school rules. Possible action includes restrictions during recess, after school detention, work assignments, suspension. Students must sign in when reporting to the Headmistress' office for disciplinary action. They must list the teacher sending them and the time of the day.

  • Any pupil who is persistently insubordinate, is repeatedly or wilfully mischievous or is guilty of malpractices in connection with examination or has committed an act of serious indiscipline or misbehaviour or whom in the opinion of the head of the school has an unwholesome influence on his fellow pupils may be expelled permanently or removed from the school for a specified period by the head of the school.
  • Pupils should realise that they are responsible to the school authorities not only for their conduct in the school but also for their general behaviour outside. Any reported or observed objectionable conduct out of the school on the part of the pupils would make them liable for disciplinary action.
  • Pupils are expected to show gentleness and courtesy to their Teachers and Companions. Refinement of manners should distinguish every pupil of this School.
