At the 28th August Board Meeting, the College Board approved significant amendments to the Behaviour Management Policy (Policy No. 15) at Kerang Christian College. These changes will be presented to students at upcoming assemblies during the next week. Additional details will also be provided to families in the form of brochures, website updates, updated student handbooks and the 2015 College Diary.
At Kerang Christian College, we expect all children to behave in an appropriate and acceptable manner. We believe that the quality of children’s learning and the quality of life in the College will be enhanced and enriched through the promotion and maintenance of high standards of behaviour. This policy document provides our school community with an opportunity to ensure that all students respect this culture at our College.
We aim to establish a caring and supportive environment where all members of the College community feel secure, respected and valued. The development of personal qualities and social skills, and the fostering of socially acceptable behaviour, is an integral aspect of the school curriculum.
The staff at Kerang Christian College are committed to developing Christian character within each of our students. The implementation of rules and their consistent enforcement assist in the development of Christian character at our school. The rules and their enforcement are also intended to help each student accept responsibility for personal actions, and to ensure the safety and welfare of other members of the College community.
Clear guidelines, communicated with students and consistently enforced by all staff, add greatly to the effective maintenance of a school culture, which supports a safe environment for all students, and a positive classroom atmosphere.
A key element of the updated Behaviour Management Policy is ongoing communication with parents in regards to student behaviour and strategies being implemented at the College. The following scripture references provide the Biblical framework on which the College Behaviour Policy is modelled.
Proverbs 22:6: Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Ephesians 6:1-2: Respect and Honour – Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right, honour your father and mother for this is the first commandment with a promise. Thank you once again for your ongoing support of our College.
