1. The school disciplinary structure is to develop self-discipline in learners, to assist them to realise their academic potential, and to become mature and independent-thinking adults.
2. There are two forms of disciplinary action namely informal and formal to be initiated by the school should the need arise. The nature of the action taken will depend on the circumstances, the seriousness of the infringement, and any mitigating or aggravating factors being of relevance. The ultimate penalty therefore may be, but need not necessarily be, applied.
3. The disciplinary action or sanction applied in response to the learner’s misconduct will therefore generally require the educators, or management to exercise judgment in deciding on the appropriate and fair action to be taken. For any further investigations, learners are required to give full cooperation and to answer questions asked accurately and truthfully. Witnesses may be interviewed and material or electronic evidence may be gathered. The learners involved may be asked to write incident reports. Interference in the investigation, or a lack of cooperation, will result in further penalties.
