  • A record will be maintained of late attendance in the School diary.
  • Pupils habitually coming late to School will be sent home.

Silence


  • Special care must be taken by teachers and pupils to preserve an atmosphere of silence and serious work during class hours.
  • Strict silence must also be observed outside the Principal's Office, the Staff Room, in the Library and in the corridors.

Order


  • When moving along corridors, from one class to another, the rule is always: Keep to the left, walk in single file and in silence. Running inside the building is forbidden.
  • No child is permitted to leave class during class hours except for some very urgent reason.
  • No pupil is permitted to leave School premises during the recess or otherwise, except with the written permission of the Principal.
  • No girl is permitted to enter the Staff Room.
  • Pupils will not be allowed to use the School telephone without the permission of the Principal. Permission will be given only in very urgent cases.

  • No pupil is permitted to bring cell phones or other electronic gadgets to the school.
  • No pupil is allowed to bring/park any vehicle in the school campus. Strict action will be taken against defaulters.

Cleanliness


  • All must consider it their special responsibility to keep the School clean.
  • Every girl should be particularly careful to avoid throwing waste paper, fruit peels, lollipop and ice-cream sticks etc. out of the windows or on the School grounds. Use should be made of the waste paper baskets and bins provided for the purpose.
  • Use of polythene bags is banned in the school.

Care of School Property


  • Pupils must take special care or School property, i.e., furniture, apparatus etc. with the understanding that we respect whatever does not belong to us. Any damage done to School property must be made good.
  • Pupils must take care of their personal property as the School authorities do not accept responsibility for lost watches, ornaments, money, books etc.

Behaviour Outside School


  • Every girl should remember that her behaviour in the School and outside is a reflection of both her home and School. She ought to conduct herself in a manner worthy of the dignity of a child of God and a pupil of the Convent of Jesus & Mary.
  • Pupils are not permitted to wear the School uniform or blazer at any function outside the School unless they are accompanied by a teacher, or sent by the School.
  • If a student gets married while in school her name will be struck off the School rolls.

Courtesy


  • Children shall always greet their teachers, elders and friends in a pleasant and audible tone of voice, wherever they may meet them -in School or outside. This trait reveals a charming testimony of the quality of a child.
  • Children should, while speaking to one another, always avoid the use of slang, loud talk and common expressions, that ill befits a young woman. They must take care never to interrupt anyone who is talking.
  • They shall be docile in their obedience to their parents and teachers, always giving them the respect and affection that is their due and they must accept their guidance and correction with gratitude.
  • Their School motto - Hold High The Torch - should prompt them to live in joy and confidence in God and with simplicity and harmony to live as one great family under Him.
  • Children will consider it a privilege to be of service to anyone in need of assistance.
