All Xaverians are expected to conduct themselves as gentlemen/ladies at all times and in all places. The whole-hearted co-operation of the guardians is expected at all times in formation of the character of their children. As the child progresses from the junior to the senior classes, increasing opportunities will be given 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 assignments. Absenting oneself from school for merely social functions is strongly discouraged.
Xaverians should behave in a courteous manner wherever they go. They should always remember that the school is judged by their conduct. They should greet teachers wherever they meet them.
Rules of Conduct for Students:
- Every student should bring the school diary daily. If a pupil loses the diary, he/she will be subjected to disciplinary action. A fine of Rs. 100.00 will be levied and a new diary will have to be purchased with necessary remarks about the loss of the previous one.
- All students must be clean and neatly dressed in school uniform according to season. Trousers and blazers must be of the regulation pattern and colour. Leggy trousers are strictly prohibited. Uniforms of other shades are not allowed in school.
- Black shoes with laces by boys, black shoes with buckles or laces by girls, are to be worn at all times.
- Indisciplined behaviour in the school bus will make the pupil ineligible to use school transportation. Bus monitors are assigned to help maintain discipline. Most buses also have teachers or the other staff members. Obeying the instructions given by them (whether they are your teachers teaching the student concerned or not) is a precondition to avail oneself of the school transport. If a student is repeatedly caught for bulling, fighting or using abusive language in the school bus he/she shall summarily taken out from the school bus.
- All school property must be taken care of and no student should scratch or spoil the desks or chairs or damage any other school furniture, write or draw anything on the walls or in any way damage things belonging to others. Damage done, even by accident, should be reported at once to the vice Principal’s/Headmaster’s office. Any damage done will be made good by the one who does it. If the culprit cannot be indentified/refuses to confess, the whole class will be liable to pay the penalty fixed by the Principal. Anyone who sees something damaged should report the matter even if he/she does not know who has done it. Each class will be responsible for looking after the class property.
