Behaviour Code

Students learn to work independently, cooperatively in small groups, and in a whole class setting. The ability to work together is a vital factor in the learning process. Mutual respect, cooperation, and positive interaction are values that are encouraged at St. Aidan. As a Catholic school community we endeavour to uphold Gospel values, in our teaching and in our daily activities, in accordance with Ministry of Education guidelines we therefore emphasize respect for self, for others, for authority, and for property. Positive behaviour and reinforcement of good behaviour are stressed. However, if a student demonstrates lack of consideration for others or for school rules, then the school will proceed to involve parents in dealing with unacceptable behaviour and its consequences.


Guidelines for Behaviour

  1. Show Respect for God and the Catholic Faith
    Students must participate fully at Mass and in all religious activities in a prayerful, respectful manner.
  2. Show Respect for Yourself and Others
    Students must appreciate every person as a member of God’s family and value the unique gifts of each individual.
  3. Show Respect for All Adults
    Students must recognize the efforts of all adults who contribute to their learning by demonstrating polite manners, appropriate tone of voice and body language and deference.
  4. Show Respect for Our School
    Students demonstrate pride in their school by treating all school property respectfully and upholding the school’s positive reputation in their daily encounters and on school excursions.


Following the Guidelines

At Lunch
Students are encouraged to stay at school over the lunch hour. From time to time parents may give permission for their child to leave the school to purchase lunch or go home for lunch. Parents are asked to notify the school in writing each time they give their child permission to do so. Students eat lunch in their classrooms under supervision.
