LIFE IN THE CLASS ROOM
To develop this spirit of unity, co-operation and mutual responsibility, spiritual help is provided by class Celebrations of the Eucharist as well as the Sacrament of Reconciliation which are arranged by the Religious Education Department. There is also a full Home-Room period each week with the Grade Mistress as well as a monthly session with the grade prefect.
Cupboards are provided in each classroom for storing general classroom belongings. Each girl may bring her own hasp and staple as well as padlock for her locker. Teachers are not to allow students to go to lockers/cupboards during class.
She also assists and directs the performance of class duties and the general neatness and tidiness of the classroom and surrounding areas. She may recommend any classmate for punishment, whenever necessary. The grade captain also has the responsibility of reporting the number of students present in her class to the Coordinator by the end of the roll call after lunch each day.
A Prefect is appointed to each class to act as a guide, helping the girls to understand, appreciate and observe the school rules and regulations, and assisting the girls in carrying out the various projects planned by the Student Council for the improvement of students in conduct and in striving to achieve the ideals and goals of the school. The girls may also discuss with the grade prefect any problems or difficulties they may wish pertaining to school life in general.
Each set of grades also has a co-ordinator, who is a senior Teacher appointed to see to the smooth and efficient functioning of the classes under her jurisdiction, as well as to inspire a spirit of co-operation and unity among all the classes in her particular grade through special activities and block meetings. Letters of excuses for absence and for special permissions are presented by students to her.
