Personal Appearance


To be well-groomed, clean, neat and tidy are our guiding principles of appearance. The correct uniform, clean and pressed, should be worn to school.




Hair Styles & Colour


Hair colour is acceptable as long as it is one of the natural hair colours (blonde, black, brown etc.). Outrageous colours are not acceptable such as red, blue, pink, purple, orange etc. and patches or streaks of any colour. For all male students, hair must be tidy and not sit below the eyeline or collar. In secondary girls may wear their hair down however in some subjects girls may be requested to wear their hair back for safety reasons. Hair ties and bands are to be navy or white. In primary girls must tie their back.




Jewellery and Make-Up


No wrist jewellery, rings, body piercing, tattoos or ankle bands may be worn other than a watch. Girls may wear a single small stud or sleeper in the lobe of each ear. In Secondary it is preferable not to wear any makeup for young women, however if it is natural looking (is not noticeable) then a light covering of foundation, lip gloss (uncoloured) and lightly applied mascara may be worn. Make-up is not permitted in primary. “And let not your adornment be merely external.....but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.” - 1 Peter 3 v 3 & 4





Standards of Conduct


A major aim of this school is to foster Christian character in the lives of our students. We believe that attention to conduct and dress are important in the development of these traits.The following guidelines are to help students set high standards of personal appearance and behaviour expected of them as students of this school.




Conversation


Students are expected to speak in an appropriate manner and show courtesy and respect at all times. Examples of this include:
 Addressing people by their known and proper name
 Addressing adults by their appropriate title
 Always showing gratitude and thankfulness
 Complimenting and acknowledging each other whenever possible
 Speaking to others with grace
 Welcoming guests openly
“Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how to talk to one another.” - Galatians 4 v 6




Conduct


Students are expected to behave in a self-disciplined and considerate manner at all times. Examples of this include:
 Following and obeying all school rules and procedures
 Being diligent and conscientious in their work
 Being kind and considerate to one another
 Looking after their own and other’s property
 Being friendly and helpful
 Treating others as they would like to be treated
“Live in a manner that is worthy of the Lord, pleasing Him in every respect, bearing fruit in every good work.” - Colossians 1 v 10




Attitude


All students are expected to have a positive and caring attitude. Examples of this include:
 Knowing that God loves them
 Knowing that they are of great value
 Knowing that they can be successful in whatever they dedicate themselves to
 Knowing that their teachers and this school have their best interests at heart
 Encouraging, affirming and being thoughtful to others.

“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus...” - Philippians 2 v 3-5




Respect for Authority


Students are expected to maintain a respectful attitude towards their parents, teachers and all those who are put in charge over them. We expect prompt and respectful obedience. Examples include:
 Being teachable and open to counsel and correction
 Being respectful and quick to obey
 Being loyal, supportive and submissive
“Obey your leaders, and submit to them; for they keep watch over your souls, as those who will give an account.” - Hebrews 13 v 17




Inter-Personal Relarionships


Students are expected to maintain the loving and caring environment and atmosphere of our school. They are expected to treat others with dignity and honour and to be encouraging and helpful to one another. Hurtful or derogatory teasing, bullying and other negative actions will not be tolerated. Exclusive boy/girl relationships are considered a distraction from the focus of studies and are discouraged.
“Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.”
- 1 Timothy 4 v 12




Discipline


All students are expected to abide by the standards of conduct set down by the school. Failure to do so will result in appropriate corrective measures. If a student does not respond to normal disciplinary procedures, parents will be contacted to discuss the situation. Serious breaches of conduct will result in students being stood down or dismissed from the school. “All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.” - Hebrews 12 v 11




Personal Habits


Students are expected to develop and maintain high personal standards. Throughout their tenure at the school, all students are considered to be ambassadors representing the school wherever they go. We expect them to maintain standards that are in keeping with the aims of our school, even outside of regular school hours (this includes social media). At all times, they are to abstain from smoking, drinking alcohol, using illegal drugs or indecent language and profanities, and to strive to be above reproach.




Sickness or Injust at School


Minor injuries are treated at School. Parents or caregivers will be contacted if medical attention is required. In case of emergency your child will be taken straight to hospital. If your child has an allergy or requires medication at School, please let us know early in the year. There is an opportunity to declare medical conditions on the Enrolment Form. We strongly advise parents to declare any conditions that may put their child or others at risk. It is extremely important that the office has up-to-date contact phone numbers should there be an emergency.

NCEA


NCEA is the national qualification for senior secondary school students in New Zealand. Understanding NCEA
At each level of the qualification (Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3), students are assessed on the learning attained in their selection of subjects. Achievement Standards
Individual NCEA subjects are subdivided into Achievement Standards. Some standards are internally assessed and moderated externally during the academic year. Others are externally assessed through the NCQA (New Zealand Qualifications Authority) national examinations which generally take place at the end of the year. Each successful assessment earns credits that contribute to a certificate at level 1, Level 2 or Level 3. Most subjects offer between 16 and 24 credits.




Keeping in Touch


It is important that if your circumstances and contact details change that we're kept up to date with your most recent contact details. It is expected that students live with parents/caregivers, if there are any changes to living arrangements please let us know, changes may affect enrolment.
