c) At the first bell before each session, pupils should go in silence to their respective classes and wait for the teacher.

e) Pupils should not keep any money in their possession while in school.

Students are not permitted to leave the premises even during the lunch – break without the permission of their respective class teachers. Those students going home for lunch will carry a note from their parents duly signed by the teacher requesting permission for the same. Loitering outside the school premises without reason is strictly forbidden.
6. a) Punctual and regular attendance is insisted upon. Leave of absence from school for attending marriages, functions, etc. must be applied in advance. The general terms of excuse, “for some business”, or “for some ceremony” are not acceptable. Hence give specific reason for absence.

c) Continued absence without leave or intimation for a week shall be considered equivalent to the withdrawal of a pupil from School and his name be struck off the rolls.

e) Leave note should always be written in this calendar in the space provided.

b) If a pupil present for the forenoon session requires leave in the afternoon, he should get prior permission from the Headmistress.
9. Irregular attendance, insubordination to teachers, habitual inattention to school work, obscenity in word, act etc. are sufficient reasons for the temporary or permanent dismissal of a pupil. Other offences such as coming late to class, damaging school property etc., are punishable.
10. The School does not hold itself responsible for the conduct of the boys outside its premises. Injustice to itself, however, it takes cognizance of any serious misconduct of its pupils committed outside its precincts and should any serious charge be fairly substantiated, the guilty will be punished according to the gravity of the of fence.

During the monsoon season students are required to wear rain shoes or sandals, which are compulsorily black in colour. Students should wear their ID every day.
