Diary Policy Years 7 – 10

The Student School Diary is meant as an important communication tool between teachers and parents. It is not meant as a personal diary for students and it is unacceptable to:

  • Decorate pages with photographs, graffiti, liquid paper etc.
  • Cover teacher’s written comments
  • Rip pages out
  • Use two diaries

The diary is used to record extension and redemption dates, failure to submit homework, assignments etc., as well as detention dates and times, out of uniform, passes to the library or to see other teachers.

The diary is also to be used to record positive aspects of a student’s progress, academically and socially.

All students are required to have this diary with them at all times and expected to produce it when requested by teachers. Refusal to do so will be seen as a serious offence.

If a diary is lost the student is expected to buy a new one from the General Office. Diary replacement sheets will be issued for only a limited time while the new diary is being purchased.

Students can expect to be punished if this policy is not followed. This may include detention, confiscation of the diary and the cost met for a replacement, or in severe cases, suspension.
