School Rules

School rules apply to behaviour inside and outside the classroom.  They must be known and understood.  These rules are to protect students and staff so that everyone can feel safe and enjoy learning in a positive school environment. 

The school advises against bringing personal items to school and can take no responsibility for personal items that go missing.


  • Alcohol, cigarettes, lighters, matches, illegal drugs or weapons
  • Riding bikes, skateboards, scooters in school grounds
  • Smoking, vaping or associating with students smoking or vaping at school, on the way to and from school, or at a school related function or activity
  • Visitors without a Visitor Pass from the main office
  • Leaving the school grounds without permission
  • Litter or damage to the environment
  • Offensive language or behaviour
  • Graffiti (on textbooks, exercise books, folders or school bags)
  • Unsupervised contact sport eg. Bullrush, tackle rugby.



Very serious offences are referred immediately to the Senior Leadership Team whether they occur in or out of the classroom.  Consequences for these offences may include a stand-down or suspension from school which in turn could lead to exclusion/expulsion.
