Students' Expectations

Star is a community in which respect for others and self is fundamental.

Only in a community where each member respects the rights of others to learn, to teach, to play, to feel secure and happy, can real growth towards maturity and freedom take place.

We ask that all students follow the Healthy, Safe and Respectful School Community Policy,which states that students respect the dignity and rights of each member of the Star community by:

• contributing to a community where all students and staff have the right to feel safe and secure;
• abiding by the College Anti-Harassment and Anti-Discrimination Policy;
• accepting responsibility for my own actions and decisions;
• extending courtesy and respect to all;
• doing my best to learn in all tasks;
• respecting the right of the teacher to teach and the rights of others to learn;
• promoting the good reputation of the College;
• keeping the school clean and safe; and
• respecting my own and others' property.

Students are required to behave at all times and to all people with politeness, respect, courtesy and consideration.

Students are expected to arrive promptly at 8.30am for classes and to remain on the College property at all times during the school day.

The use of mobile communication devices is to be in accordance with the Student ICT Policy
