Rules & Regulations

INTRODUCTION:

College Ste Marie wishes to offer your child, a broad-based education which aims at helping him/her to develop integrally to his/her best potential.

We firmly believe that we have the duty to create an environment which is conducive to worthwhile learning, which enhances a sense of belonging and which shows a caring concern for the well being and safety of all the members of our School Community.

School rules provide a frame which favours the acquisition of essential values and principles such as:

  • Freedom of conscience in the exercise of moral judgement
  • Respect for the rights of others
  • The reciprocity of rights and duties

Disciplinary sanctions are not meant to be merely punitive measures but concerted attempts to foster responsibility for actions and to strengthen aspirations towards growth in self-discipline.

Rules and Regulations

All students must be at school at 8.15 a.m. to attend morning assembly which is a most important moment in every school day. Once a pupil arrives at school in the morning, he/she is not authorised to leave the school premises. Repeated lateness will entail sanctions. The number of cases of lateness will be recorded in the report book.

      Pupils are not allowed to leave the school premises before 15.15 p.m.
  • Permission to leave school may be given if a pupil is sick, provided the school has been able to contact the responsible party to arrange for a member of the family to come and fetch him/her. (ID card must be presented in this case)
  • Parents are strongly encouraged to make all appointments (doctors, dentists, etc…) after school hours or during holidays.
  • If for any reason, a pupil cannot attend his/her class (being in the sickroom, activity in progress …) he/she must notify the subject teacher.
