Code of Conduct

A Sense of Hope

To fulfil its vision, every public school is empowered (by section 8 of the South African Schools Act of l996) to draw up a Code of Conduct. The code sets out to explain the rules through which the rights and corresponding responsibilities of each pupil are realised. Once formulated, approved and announced, the code has the force of law. The Code is currently being revised.

The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to establish a disciplined, safe and purposeful school environment, dedicated to the improvement and maintenance of the quality of the learning process.

It consists of the following sections:

Rules and Regulations
Uniform regulations
Bullying policy
Drug policy
Learner Acceptable Use Agreement: Computers
Examination rules
Library rules
Classroom procedure
Schedule of offences and possible consequences
