The school handbook clearly explains the classroom and general school rules to all students.

Students may be referred to the Vice-Principal or Principal if the situation requires further attention. Continued inappropriate behaviour will result in disciplinary action such as socially useful productive service or a suspension.

Most behavioural issues are addressed directly and immediately by the classroom or subject teacher in charge at the time.
