Discipline

A school must have a strict but fair discipline policy. Discipline is not imposed as an end in itself but as a means of teaching the students self-discipline to enable them to take their place in society as responsible, mature, God-fearing adults.

The basis for the discipline policy at Saint Thomas Aquinas College is to instill in the student a desire to act in a Catholic manner for the love of God. This applies to all areas of College life: charity, obedience to superiors, academic excellence, grooming, presentation of work, etc.

Any punishment found necessary must be accepted as a consequence of the student's action.

The Principal reserves the right to expel a pupil who persists in serious misconduct and whose presence is clearly detrimental to the good of the others.

Corporal punishment of students by staff is prohibited and not permitted under any circumstances.
