Regulations

An unregulated society is a drifting one. Therefore it is necessary to order the behaviour of students especially at the secondary school Ievel. The Academy believes that students should know what constitutes acceptable and unacceptable behaviour and be encouraged to conform to standard norms. Such behaviour should be based upon their own self respect, respect for the rights of others, respect for the law, respect for the Academy's authority, respect for their teachers and the staff of the institution. An important regulation is that students must obey the laws of the land. A breach of law will be taken very seriously by the Academy. It is inevitable, nevertheless, that some written regulations should exist, and that these should be updated from time to time, as the need arises. It should also be Noted that regulations on certain subjects have been laid down here in this document: particularly over visitor ( see 4.7) and on the formation of student organizations (see 2.3) Such regulations have not been repeated in the following list, see also booklets on Rules and Regulations for students.
