Student Code of Conduct

Based on guidelines from the Ministry of Education, our Board and schools have developed codes of conduct, which outline the standards of behaviour expected in our Catholic school communities. Staff, parents, students, and members of the larger community all work together to help ensure that these standards are achieved.

The spirit of Christ guides us in achieving respect, civility, and responsible citizenship through the following standards of behaviour:

  • Respect and comply with all applicable federal, provincial and municipal laws;
  • Demonstrate honesty and integrity;
  • Respect differences in people, their ideas and opinions as each member is a unique creation of God;
  • Treat one another with dignity and respect at all times, and especially when there is disagreement;
  • Respect and treat others fairly, regardless of, for example, race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, marital status, family status, or disability;
  • Respect the rights of others;
  • Dress in a manner that complies with school dress/uniform codes and is appropriate for school activities with regard to exposure, cleanliness, and/or message;
  • Show proper care and regard for school property and the property of others;
  • Take appropriate measures to help those in need;
  • Respect all members of the school community, especially persons in a position of authority;
  • Respect the needs of others to work in an environment that is conducive to learning, including ensuring that cellphones and other personal mobile devices are only used during instructional time for education purposes (as directed by an educator) for health and medical purposes and/or to support special education needs;
  • Seek assistance from a member of the school staff, if necessary, to resolve conflict peacefully;
  • Not swear at a teacher or at another person in a position of authority.

In order to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone, all members of our school communities must not:
  • Cause injury to any person with an object;
  • Be in possession of, or under the influence of, or provide others with, alcohol, recreational cannabis, illegal and/or restricted or illegal drugs;
  • Be in possession of any weapon, including firearms;
  • Use any object to threaten or intimidate another person;
  • Provide alcohol, recreational cannabis, illegal and/or restricted drugs to a minor;
  • Inflict or encourage others to inflict bodily harm on another person;
  • Engage in bullying behaviours;
  • Commit sexual assault;
  • Traffic weapons or illegal drugs;
  • Give alcohol to a minor;
  • Commit robbery;
  • Engage in hate propaganda and other forms of behaviour motivated by hate or bias; and
  • Commit an act of vandalism that causes extensive damage to school property or to property located on the premises of the school.
