Violation of the code of the conduct

The schools adopts a positive/constructive approach in the management of the discipline wherein the students would willingly accept the norms of conduct of the school and behave or act in an appropriate or desirable manner, leading to their academic excellence and overall developments, rather than unwillingly complying with the rules because of the fear or threat of punishment. In spirit of this approach the school would strive to create a teaching-learning environment conducive to encouraging self-discipline among students. The school would also make attempts to understand the causes of problem behavior among, children and counsel them appropriately. However if the misconduct does occur despite the above measures, the school would be obliged to take punitive action for the purposes of deterrence and in the larger interest of the schools/community.
