Every boy is entitled to a safe and orderly learning environment. The majority of boys have a positive attitude towards school and are conscientious about their academic and extracurricular performance. Unfortunately some boys experience difficulty in maintaining an appropriate and respectful attitude toward College rules.
Inappropriate behaviour creates problems for the boys themselves, as well as for peers, their parents/guardians, and College staff. When difficulties occur, disciplinary action must be taken in order to maintain a safe, orderly learning environment.
Boys will be asked to sign their acceptance of safe school and network-use responsibilities. Boys who display excessive absenteeism or behavioural problems are asked to sign behavioural agreements.
Refusal to sign in no way indicates these rules are not binding. It should also be noted that all inappropriate behaviour taking place off campus in school uniform or to and from College or at College activities will be addressed under the Discipline Policy.
In addition to College discipline, boys may be cited for fighting, possession of controlled substances including tobacco, truancy, weapons, vandalism, and other unlawful behaviours. Driving and parking violations are also subject to disciplinary measures but the College reserves the right to refer such offences to the SAPS. Consequences may vary according to the seriousness of the infraction per administrative discretion.
