- RULES OF DISCIPLINE
Co-operation of parents/guardians is most essential for maintaining discipline in all the school programmes and school life. Too much leniency may spoil the child, but freedom within limits without suppressing and interfering in the development of the child’s personality is the goal of the institution.
All Norbertines are expected to behave well at all times and in all places. The whole-hearted co-operation of the guardians is expected at all times in the formation of the character of their children. As the child progresses from the lower to the upper classes, he/she will be given increasing opportunity to shift from conforming to externally imposed order to self-imposed discipline.
The School will insist on strict punctuality, regular School attendance, cleanliness in dress, general grooming and fidelity to study and work assignment.
