ISA Code of Conduct

A code of conduct is necessary in our school community to realize the educational objectives of the school.


  1. To provide the opportunity for each learner to develop his/her abilities and skills optimally in every educational area in which the school is involved.
  2. To provide each learner, as a unique individual, with the opportunity to prepare himself/herself fully so that he/she may play a meaningful role in society as an adult.
  3. To provide each learner with a safe and secure learning environment which acknowledges that each learner is a unique individual with his/her own special traits and needs.
  4. To teach learners the principle of caring for one another in a spirit of co-operation and support.
  5. To ensure a safe environment so as to limit physical injuries as far as possible.
  6. To offer, in a school-parent partnership, the best for the child through effective communication.

Proper behavior must always and simply be based on three principles:  respect for oneself, respect for the worth and dignity of others, and respect for one's own and others' property.

  • We are kind, respectful and helpful to others.
  • We keep ourselves and others safe.
  • We do our best in the classroom and do what we can to support each other's learning.
  • We take responsibility for our actions.
  • We respect and care for our environment.
