School Rules ST. PAUL'S COLLEGE SCHOOL RULES St. Pauls College is a caring Christian school.

Our aim is to provide a well-disci plined, happy and safe environment in which students can develop a lasting sense of moral, soc ial and spiritual responsibility. Our commitment to academic endeavour, leadership and global awar eness will ensure that our students are well-equipped to succeed in an increasingly complex world. The twenty-first century will make ever greater demands for the qualities and values instilled by an education at St. Paul's College. We are not resting on our laurels, although St. Pauls College is t he oldest school founded in Hong Kong. We are committed to an integrated whole-school approach to Pastoral Care. It is premised on the belief that in order to for our students to reach their full potential the p astoral dimension which influences student values are promoted at every level of school life. It is thro ugh the pastoral care system that students become more self-reliant and disciplined. Our students are expected to show courtesy and consideration to others; to reflect a pride in their appearance and to conduct themselves properly both inside and outside the school premises. Our staff will ensure that problems and difficulties of students are dealt with in a sympathetic and professional manner . A CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES The aims of our school rules are to make each person aware of the value of selfcontrol and to develop a sense of responsibility for their own conduct and for the well being o f others. Rules are established as guidelines for behaviour and should lead the student to be able t o distinguish between freedom and license. Within a community, freedom can never mean complete liberty for the individual to do as they please, as they must be aware of the effect of any of their action s on others. Our behaviour management policy is based on a Charter of Rights and Responsibilities. This Cha rter applies to students, staff & parents. We have the right to be respected. Therefore it is our responsibility to respect the rights and feelings of others. We have the right to a clean, healthy and safe environment. Therefore it is our responsibility to respect and protect our environment. We have the right to physical and emotional health. Therefore, it is our respons ibility to make decisions and take actions that are in the best interest of our own being.

We have the right to learn. Therefore its our responsibility to actively contribut e to building the best learning environment for ourselves and others. We will demonstrate our rights by: 1. Treating each other with respect and dignity. 2. Behaving in a manner which does not distract, disrupt, offend or endanger oth ers. 3. Respecting and obeying the regulations that govern the school and community. 4. Promoting a healthy working and learning environment. 5. Demonstrating patience and understanding towards all members of the school. 6. Acting in ways that respect the physical and emotional well being of ourselve s and others. 7. Honouring commitments and making good use of time. 8. Respecting property and equipment which belong to the school and others. The following are guidelines for students and parents, detailing what d of the students at St. Pauls College in terms of rules to be observed and behaviour able. This code of conduct is based upon self-discipline, good behaviour both in and out smart appearance, punctuality, respect and consideration for others and their property, and good manners, honesty and tolerance. is require that is accept of class, politeness

Equal opportunities are offered to each pupil irrespective of gender, race or creed. Being a pupil at Queen's brings a variety of opportunities. We expect pupils to make the most of their academic abilities and to develop interests in areas such as sport, music, drama, the graphic arts, Duke of Edinburgh's Award, community service, outdoor pursuits etc. Such a commitment enriches the individual as well as the community.

The school rules listed below are also intended for the good of the individual a nd the good of the community. Being a member of the school implies a willingness to accept school d iscipline. Pupils at Queen's College represent the College while they are in residence, whe n travelling to and from school and when participating in any school activity. At these times al l pupils are expected to behave courteously and in such a way as to bring credit to the schoo l and themselves. Respect for others and the property of others is of paramount import ance within the community. The law of the land applies in all circumstances. PUPILS' RESPONSIBILITY It is the responsibility of every pupil to know these school rules. ABSENCE FROM SCHOOL Requests for absence caused by matters such as sickness, dentist's or doctor's a ppointments, university Open Days, interviews etc are the concern of the House Parent or Sixt h Form Tutor to whom correspondence is to be addressed. In the case of illness or other unforese en absence please ring or email the School Office who will inform the Houseparent/tutor. Mo rning assembly is a compulsory part of the school day. Please note that when pupils return to school after any illness they must on eac h occasion bring a letter of explanation from home, addressed to the House Parent. LATENESS: a pupil who is late or fails to register repeatedly can expect detenti on or fatigues (see topic 6). BOARDERS' 'SLEEP OUT' arrangements are also made with the appropriate House Pare nt. BOARDERS are required to return to school in time for Chapel when there is a ser vice on Sunday evening. There are no exeats permitted on Remembrance weekends. THE HEADMASTER deals with requests for absence made on compassionate grounds or other exceptional circumstances. Such requests must be made to the Headmaster in writi ng and well in advance of the proposed absence. Permission is willingly given for compassionate reasons but pupils must recognis e that other requests for absence, particularly those affecting a commitment to a school team or activity, are likely to be refused, as such absences adversely affect the interests not only o f the individual but also of the school as a whole.

Absence from school is not normally allowed at lunchtime. Special requests to le ave the school site must be made to the House Parent or Head of Sixth Form. INVOLVEMENT IN GAMES AND ACTIVITIES Pupils are strongly encouraged to join in games and activities.
