It is expected that each student will endeavour to keep all of the College regulations and show respect for those placed in positions of authority.
High standards of courtesy, kindness, morality and honesty are to be demonstrated at all times. Character should reflect that of Jesus Christ and give evidence of growth and maturity, reflected in behaviour at home, school or elsewhere.
Members of the school should be constantly aware of their actions and make every endeavour to bring credit to themselves, their parents and their school. Careful and considerate behaviour should be displayed by students of this school when travelling to and from school, at school and in their social life. All students are to keep their appearance neat and tidy and to wear correct school uniform with pride.
No student is permitted to smoke, drink alcohol or use drugs (or be in possession of cigarettes, alcohol or drugs) on school premises, or when wearing school uniform. Students will, on all occasions, act with a sense of responsibility to Flinders College. Should their private conduct bring the school into disrepute, they will be subject to school discipline.
All members of the school community are to demonstrate respect for the rights and comfort of other members at all times. This will show itself in care and honesty in regard to other people’s property, cleanliness and tidiness in the classrooms and around the school, and the kind of behaviour that does not inconvenience or injure other members of the school. This respect will be evidenced also in support and encouragement for other students and consideration for the feelings of others.
The basis for discipline at Flinders is the correct meaning of the word – that is, to be the conduct of a disciple or apprentice copying and obeying his master. Flinders seeks to make the model that is copied by students and staff alike, Jesus Christ, the Lord revealed in Scripture. This means discipline is a matter of inward response, not outward control. Discipline of students is based on principles of procedural fairness and does not permit corporal punishment.
We trust that each student at Flinders Christian Community College will endeavour to uphold the aims of the school to “Grow in Love”. With God’s assistance we will help guide each young person toward self-discipline and a positive awareness of the effect of their behaviour on other people.
The College supports a safe environment for every student. Students have the right to feel safe at school. The school will respond strongly to any form of bullying or harassment, including cyber-bullying. Students are not to use or publish on the internet any material regarding other students or staff at the College without the express permission and knowledge of that student or staff member.
