Absence During School Term

A pupil’s absence from school must be based on a valid reason. If a pupil is sick, the absence must be covered by a medical certificate from a doctor.
For other valid reasons, a letter from the parent/guardian with accompanying documents will be required. All pupils are expected to complete each school term and any request for pupils to return to home country early or for tours during school term does not constitute a valid reason.

A copy of the class time-table will be displayed on the door of each classroom. This will be updated whenever there is a change. Pupils are required to copy the time-table in their school diary.

Counselling of Pupils

Pupils with emotional / behavioural problems are referred to the Principal, Vice-Principal or the HOD (Pupil Welfare). Parents may be called in for conferences and home visits may be made to gain better understanding of the pupils and their background.  Parents are requested to keep to the appointed time.Pupils with behavioural problems may also be referred to see the school counsellor who comes on a weekly basis.
