School provides a pleasant and orderly atmosphere and is a safe and well run campus in which to be educated, the following applies;
- Pupils are responsible for the safe custody of their belongings. Money or any article of value should never be left unattended or handed to a teacher or to the office staff for safe keeping. Neither the management nor the School accepts liability for the lost articles.

- Pupils should behave in an orderly manner on the way to and from school
- Courtesy and good manners will be expected at all times between pupils and to teachers office staff, janitorial, as well as visitors to the school
The school is keen to assist parents by giving support to the home in any way it can. In return we seek the wholehearted cooperation of all parents in the matter of school discipline, which is essential for the welfare of all, in the maintenance of high standards of pupil dress and appearance, and in the establishment of regular attendance, punctuality and attention to work.
The positive aspect of the behaviour and work of pupils will be emphasised, praised and where appropriate, rewarded.
Firm and fair action should be taken by staff where there is evidence of inappropriate behaviour.
Home work is an essential part of the school curriculum, given as a necessary means of reinforcing what is being taught in class. The amount varies according to the class and the subject. Teachers make sure that all pupils keep a record in their planner and enter their homework in it every day. Even if no specific tasks are set. There is always the need for revision and study of work recently done in class to master it satisfactorily. In order to maintain a reasonable standard of homework parents are asked to check that some attempts has been made on the set piece of work that is neat and tidy.
We have a wide and widen varied selection of additional activities provided by enthusiastic staff both inside and outside the normal school day. The additional activities vary from class to class. Every year school arranges Mother day which allows the students to show their leaned skills in front of the parents.
