DISCIPLINE OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL


Every Pilarian is expected to behave well, in and off campus. Any action that comprises the good name of the school is considered a serious offense and will be dealt with. Even more if an offense is committed wearing the school uniform, it will be considered exactly as it is done inside the school. No student should be found in theaters wearing school uniform.

Any activity undertaken outside the school should be made part of the student record and submitted in writing to the Principal.

The name of the school may not be used for any activity whatsoever without the permission of the Principal.
