We try to create in St. Xavier’s Godavari School a just community where people
- Are safe and secure.
- Love and take care of themselves and each other.
- Work, play and rest.
- Protect the environment and appreciate the beauty of nature.
- Are gifted and succeed in thinking and learning.
So we expect the students to:
- Treat other people, the building and the property with respect.
- Avoid too much noise such as yelling, shouting and screaming.
- Avoid negative physical contact.
- Walk gently when it is not necessary to run.
- Avoid teasing.
- Keep the compound and class rooms clean.
The following rules will help us create a just community for all involved in the school:
- Students should present a neat appearance at all times; hair should be properly trimmed and combed. The school uniform must be worn with dignity for all classes and school functions. A student not properly dressed may be excluded from the classroom.
- Since the students are to conduct themselves as gentlemen/ladies at all times, there should be no running, shouting, pushing, playing of games, or throwing of objects in the school buildings.
- Students must care for their own possessions and school property.
- Students should not bring costly things, mobiles, and other electronic gadgets to school. If brought the item will be confiscated and will be returned only after one year. The school will not be responsible for lost articles.
- Students must not scratch or make marks on the school desks or deface school property in any way. If any damage is done to the school property, the property will have to be replaced at the student’s expense. Any damage should be reported at once to the Vice-Principal or Principal.
- Students should remember that their conduct both inside and outside of school determines the reputation of the school. When the students go on any school outing, they are to follow instructions the teacher gives.
- Whenever a remark is written in the diary students must get it signed by their parents/guardians and show it to the teacher concerned the very next class day.
- Students are not allowed to use the school telephone without the permission of the Vice Principal/office in-charge.
- The first bell for class or study is the signal to begin to move towards the classroom. The second bell is for the beginning of the lesson.
- Absolute silence is to be observed from the beginning of the meditation until the students return to the classes after the assembly.
- All are expected to speak good/correct English in school. Nepali may be spoken during the Nepali lessons only.
- Strict regularity and punctuality, implicit obedience and courtesy in words and deeds are expected from every student.
- The school reserves the right to dismiss students whose progress in studies is unsatisfactory or whose conduct is harmful to other students or whose guardians show little or no interest in the progress of their wards. Irregular attendance, habitual lack of interest in school work, immorality, disrespectful behavior, stealing, misconduct even outside the school premises and willful repeated breaches of school regulations are sufficient reasons for immediate dismissal.
- A student who uses unfair means and receives or gives assistance in any form during tests may be dismissed.
- Smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, the use of drugs and gambling of any kind is forbidden in the school premises at all times. If caught the students will be dismissed from the school immediately. Chewing gum is prohibited in the school compound and in school bus.
- Students’ first loyalty is to their school. Hence, students will not join sports clubs or give their names to play on another team without consulting the Principal.
- No student is allowed to leave the school compound without the permission of the Principal/Vice-Principal.
- Since the school library provides a good amount of reading material for the students, they are not permitted to bring any other book or magazine to school. They are allowed to bring only their schoolbooks.
- No collection of money for any purpose is to be taken up, and no meetings, demonstrations, parties, or picnics may be held without the previous permission of the Principal.
- Failure to observe the school rules will be punished according to the seriousness of the offence and as per the revised disciplinary process. Students who habitually violate the school rules will be asked to leave the school.
LEAVE OR ABSENCE
- Every absence (sick leave or otherwise) must be entered briefly in ink in the ABSENCE AND LEAVE RECORD pages and signed by the parent/guardian.
- No one who is late or has been absent on the previous day will be admitted to class without the class teacher’s signature in the diary.
- (a) Leave is not granted except on prior written application from parent/guardian and only for serious reasons.
(b) If a student is absent from school for any reason whatsoever, the parent should `phone to the school office between 8:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. on the day of the student’s absence.
- For leave up to two days, it is sufficient to apply through the pages of the school diary. Students may be allowed only two days’ leave for any ritual ceremony.
- For the leave or absence of more than two days, an application letter addressed to the Principal must be sent.
- Repeated absence without leave or unexplained absence for more than three consecutive days renders the student liable to have his/her name struck from the rolls. Readmission, if granted, will be done on payment of a readmission fee.
- Attendance is a must on the first and the last working day of school after and before each vacation. Those absent for medical reasons must present a medical certificate when they come to school after recovering. A letter addressed to the principal must be submitted along with the medical certificate.
- The intended withdrawal of a student should be informed to the Principal in writing one month in advance. Full fees for the whole year must be paid before the withdrawal of a student during the academic year.
