· We respect each other.
Teachers and students speak respectfully to one another and actively listen.
Forms of politeness are insisted upon.
· We respect school property.
We all care for our school property and equipment.
This includes not accepting any forms of vandalism, disrespect, negligence, or lack of care.
· We wear full school uniform.
Our uniform is a source of school pride and is required by our Board of Trustees.
We expect students to wear full school uniform at all times, including for Physical Education.
· We play fairly.
Fair play means positive sportsmanship, fair judgment, and inclusiveness.
· We are healthy eaters.
We are a Health Promoting School and pride ourselves on selling healthy food from our tuck shop.
Unhealthy items such as chewing gum, fizzy (or other high sugar drink), chips & confectionary will be taken away.
· We encourage students to leave valuable items at home.
If a student needs to bring one to school (like a cell phone) it should be left in the office during the school day for safe-keeping.
· We are passionate that every student reaches high levels of learning.
All students are thoughtfully placed within classes to achieve learning, and their varying needs are individually addressed.
· We offer many extracurricular opportunities.
We encourage all students to be involved in school wide activities.
If a student is passionate about something for which we do not have a group, we encourage them to start one up.
· We focus on restorative justice.
Every student has a voice and teachers apply restorative justice practices to eliminate violence.
We will not accept putdowns, verbal, emotional or physical insults.
· We allow students to leave the school grounds only with parental permission.
Students must sign out at the office.
We take our responsibility for our students at our school seriously.
