School discipline is the system of rules, punishments, and behavioural strategies appropriate to the regulation of children or adolescents and the maintenance of order in schools. Its aim is to control the student’s actions and behaviour.
An obedient student is in compliance with the school rules and codes of conduct. These rules may, for example, define the expected standards of clothing, timekeeping, social conduct, and work ethic. The term discipline is also applied to the punishment that is the consequence of breaking the rules. The aim of discipline is to set limits restricting certain behaviours or attitudes that are seen as harmful or going against school policies, educational norms, school traditions, etc.
The following kinds of behaviour are likely to be against school rules:
- Bullying (including cyber-bullying)
- Behaving in a way that prevents other students or staff from being able to work
- Bringing prohibited items to school (like knives, alcohol, drugs, cigarettes).
It aims at bringing a better discipline in the students and school. The committee consists of members from the Staff and students’ representatives with the Principal as the Head. The Student Council helps in maintaining discipline and acts as liaison between the students and teachers. The School pupil leaders are elected at the beginning of every new academic year. They are assisted by Captains and Prefects of each House and Monitors of the respective classes.
