Discipline Philosophy

CHIJ Kellock believes that a safe and orderly environment, marked by a culture of graciousness, respect and love for self, peers and teachers , is necessary for learning to take place. Every child has the right to a safe school environment and an environment that is conducive to learning. Therefore, it is the responsibility of every pupil to contribute to the building of a caring and loving learning environment through self management and the modeling of school values in everyday life in and out of school.
