Code of Conduct

Robert Rundle's Code of Conduct

At Robert Rundle School we believe that all students have the right to learn. All students work toward creating a climate that is positive and productive. Expectations and rules are an important aspect of a positive school climate and safe educational environment. They also promote academic success, common values and socially appropriate skills that enable students to work co-operatively with others. We want students to make proper decisions about their behaviour, now and in the future.

The students, staff and parents of Robert Rundle School form a unique community of people engaged in the important task of learning. A safe, pleasant learning environment is essential to successful learning.
