Language, Behaviour, and Dress Code
All students are expected to conduct themselves in a disciplined manner in all places at all times and project the good name of their school by their courteousness, manners, deportment and conversation. Students should be kind and considerate and co-operate with their fellow students and teachers at all times. The wholehearted co-operation of the parents is expected at all times in the formation of character of their children. As the student progresses from the lower to the higher classes, he/she will be given increasing opportunities to shift from conforming to externally imposed order to self-imposed order and self-imposed discipline.
Most parents will have chosen our school because they want their children to become fluent in English. A majority will not speak English at home.
Therefore, the successful teaching of English language will be high priority. Fluency in English is the key to students’ success in the rest of the curriculum, in their external examinations, and in preparation for entry to university courses taught in English.
Their success will depend on two factors, the quality of teaching & learning in ‘English’, but also their increasing fluency in the use of English throughout the school day. Each of these factors requires careful planning and execution. All teachers have a responsibility to enhance students’ skills in English listening, speaking, reading, writing and thinking.
