|FOR THE ATTENTION OF STUDENTS, PARENTS and GUARDIANS|
With the start of a new scholastic year, we are distributing a copy of the revised School Regulations. It is of utmost importance that all parents, guardians and pupils are aware of these regulations and they should be adhered to. Pupils should keep a copy of these regulations in their personal diary.
|1. CLASSROOM BEHAVIOUR|
|All classrooms, including laboratories, are the students’ place of work. Girls should have in their satchels only what is required for the day’s lessons or activities.|
|A. START OF LESSONS|
|Students should enter classrooms in an orderly manner and go straight to their places. They should take off and put away any outdoor wear, not leaving any clothing on desks. All that is required for the first four lessons should be taken out from their lockers. At the end of the break girls are expected to take out textbooks and any necessary items for the last four lessons.|
|B. END OF LESSONS|
|Girls are reminded that the bells are a signal for teachers and should not begin to pack away or put on outdoor wear until the teacher tells them to do so. Chairs must be placed on the respective tables and all litter must be picked up. The school premises should be left in order. At the end of the school day girls will be accompanied to the school exit doors by their respective teachers and LSAs.|
