At Scone Grammar School, every student has the right to a safe and caring environment which promotes learning, personal growth and positive self-esteem. The School is committed to providing this and each student has the responsibility to ensure that this occurs. It is expected that students will behave at all times, in a manner which brings credit to themselves, their families and their School. At Scone Grammar School our goal is to engender a sense of self discipline in our students and for everybody to monitor their own behaviour, using the following questions as a guide / checklist . . .
- Will this action be SAFE for everyone concerned?
- Is this action CONSIDERATE of everyone who might be affected?
- Does this action REFLECT WELL on yourself, your family and your school?
Any behaviour disruptive to the smooth functioning of the School will be considered a serious breach of discipline and will be dealt with accordingly.
