Orchid International School™

MANDATORY AND IMPORTANT GUIDELINES, RULES AND PROCEDURES APPLICABLE FOR ALL PARENTS, GUARDIANS AND WELL WISHERS OF THE SCHOOL FROM JUNE 2011 AND BEYOND; REV 02, 22.03.2011 (PART I) and REV 03, 28.03.2012 (PART II) Date of issue of this LETTER/CIRCULAR: 28.03.2012

Dear and esteemed present and prospective Parents and Guardians

NEW PARENTS SHOULD READ BOTH PARTS. EARLIER PARENTS MAY READ PART II ALONE PROVIDED THEY HAVE READ PART I ALREADY.

PART I: Our earlier circular dated 24.02.2011 is reproduced below in this part. The amended portions are highlighted and in italics.

 

WE SHOULD NOT CONTRIBUTE TO INDISCIPLINE BY VIOLATING GUIDELINES AND RULES

AND

EXPECT THE SCHOOL TO BE A DISCIPLINED PLACE FOR OUR CHILDREN. IF WE WANT OUR CHILDREN TO BE DISCIPLINED, PUNCTUAL, LEARNING AND GROWING UP WELL WE HAVE TO BE DISCIPLINED, PUNCTUAL AND GOOD. CHIDLREN EMULATE US.

In the presence of stringent rules and policies it is observed that good and obedient adherents are brought about, who may not remain “good” and obedient in the absence of strong and vigilant monitoring systems or adults who will point out. When freedom is available such children may not be able to conduct themselves in a responsible manner. They may not be able to choose what is “good.” In an environment of freedom with few rules and guidelines it is possible for children to learn to take responsible decisions and make better choice.
Hence, as school policy we would like to have the minimum number of rules, regulations and guidelines so that responsible behavior of a sustainable nature can be attempted to be brought about. But our experience suggests that some basic requirements and expectations of the school from parents are spelt out. We urge the parents, guardians and students to understand the spirit and import of these guidelines so that the need to resort to them is minimal.
