Code of Conduct
UNIFIED CODE OF DISCIPLINE AND REGULATIONS FOR STUDENTS
The regulations of this school are based upon an educational philosophy which may be summed up as follows:-
“True education means more than the pursuance of a certain course of study. It means more than preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, mental and spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world; and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come.”
(Ellen G. White, Education, page 18)
