The following rules are required to be strictly adhered to:
- Pupils must attend the School regularly and punctually. Late-comers will normally be sent back home.
- A clean and neat uniform must be worn at all times. Pupils in dirty or untidy uniforms may not be allowed to attend classes. Pupils of Classes II to V must wear the Karate uniform on the days they have Karate.
- Pupils are not allowed to attend School when sick and/or suffering from an infectious disease. Any pupil found appearing for a class work/test with an infectious disease will have his/her class work/test cancelled.
- Pupils must complete their homework regularly.
- Pupils are required to address their teachers and all other members of teaching and non-teaching staff with due respect and politeness. They are expected to behave always in a proper manner, befitting the dignity of the School.
- No pupil is allowed to leave the School premises earlier than the scheduled leaving hours.
- Pupils who do not use the School bus will be allowed to leave only with their guardians or escorts, on production of their identity cards. No pupil will be allowed to leave alone.
- No book, periodical or newspaper of any objectionable nature shall be brought to School.
- Pupils are not permitted to wear watches or gold jewellery and to carry with them any expensive objects to School.
- Any change in the pupil’s profile, including change of address, phone no. etc. should immediately be informed in writing. For change in address, the application must be signed by both parents/guardians.
- Pupils are to bring their own tiffin or obtain it from the Canteen in permissible cases.
- No programme or party is to be arranged in the School without prior permission of the authorities.
- It is not possible for the School personnel to deliver individual articles (water bottle, tiffin box, sweater, etc.) to the classroom of the concerned pupil if for any reason he/she has forgotten to bring it. Kindly ensure that the pupil is carrying the required articles.
- Girls must wear only BLACK rubber bands or hair bands. Use of no other colour will be allowed.
- Plastic water bottles without straps and metallic water bottles (now available in the market) are not allowed.
Students belonging to the younger age groups require to be handled with considerable tact and patience. In South Point, we believe in firm but empathetic handling instead of corporal punishment in order to instil discipline.
Guardians are to note that:
- Special emphasis is given to inculcate a high degree of discipline amongst the pupils. Any kind of disobedience or objectionable behaviour may result in the removal of a pupil from the School.
- Strict action may be taken if School property, including library books, is willfully damaged or destroyed. In such cases, a heavy fine may also be imposed.
- Use of unfair means in any test / exam will result in the annulment of one’s entire term result. A pupil, who renders unfair assistance to another, will be equally liable for punishment.
- A friendly attitude is to be maintained with classmates. Strict disciplinary action, like suspension, may be taken against any pupil who fights with others and causes injury to them. Pupils injurious to the moral tone of the School may have to be withdrawn.
- Guardians are requested not to permit their wards to be absent from the School except for illness or other equally valid reasons.
- Pupils, absent from School, must produce a letter and an entry in the Regularity Record of their School Diary by their guardians explaining the cause of absence.
- A formal letter, accompanied by a medical certificate, is necessary in case of sickness for over three days. If there be an appointment with a doctor, the pupil must not be sent to the School on that day.
- Pupils afflicted by infectious diseases or exposed to such diseases must complete the QUARANTINE PERIOD of 15 days before rejoining School. A medical fitness certificate by the attending physician must be handed over to the class teacher at the time of rejoining the classes.
- All leave applications, addressed to the Principal, clearly stating the name of the pupil, class, section and session, should be deposited at the Reception desk.
- Irregular and insufficient attendance may prevent promotion. Minimum attendance must be 80% of the number of School days.
- Willful absenteeism before any test / exam without grant of leave is strictly discouraged as the absentees miss valuable revision lessons and helpful suggestions, entirely to their disadvantage. Thus such pupils may be debarred from taking the respective examination.
- In case of ailment during Block Tests, guardians are to see the Principal (during visiting hours only) with the leave applications and necessary medical certificates etc.
Notice to Guardians Regarding Private Tuitions
Private tuitions do not always help the child to develop into a better student as these induces a sense of lethargy in the pupil’s study habits. In particular, we discourage the practice of private tuitions imparted by teachers of our School to our pupils, as it may at times generate an unhealthy atmosphere. The Code of Conduct applicable to teachers of affiliated schools issued by the State Government, bars any sort of private tuition.
The School discourages the practice of private tuitions imparted by teachers of South Point School or South Point High School to our students. All guardians are to submit an annual declaration to the school at the commencement of every session.
We understand that several pupils may need special personalised guidance. In such cases guardians can always take the help of the existing Special Classes arranged in School which are specially designed for such pupils. Both South Point School and South Point High School take care of additional coaching needs of pupils in certain classes. Special classes are held in Junior School in the evenings for those pupils who require additional help in English and Arithmetic. The School Office provides detailed information. In High School, too, special classes and remedial classes are held.
In South Point School, these classes take place only on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. In High School, they are held mainly on Monday and Wednesday evenings.
