It is important for students at Campbell River Christian School to increasingly take responsibility for their actions. Because CRCS is a community, every student who attends needs to take his/her responsibility to others seriously. Students are expected to work within the framework of the faith and the academic and behavioural standards of the school.
As a staff, the teachers, the administrators and support personnel are committed to:
- providing the best Christian education
- working with students to develop their academic skills
- working with students to develop their God-given talents
- respecting each individual as one created in the image of God
- praying for, communicating with, and acting as role models for students in word and deed
In return we require from students:
- a willingness to respect and work within the organization established by the school
- an acceptance of and compliance with the expectations established by the school for behaviour both in and out of school
- a respect for the adults placed in authority
- a respect for the dignity and rights of fellow students
- a commitment to strive to develop skills and abilities and complete assigned tasks on time
- an openness to communicate concerns and needs to the staff
Hebrews 12:5-11 challenges us to see discipline as an aspect of love. Discipline is not punishment or the imposition of rules, rather it is correcting, encouraging and focusing on the development of a mature disciple of Christ.
The goal of all discipline is to:
Help the individual develop self-discipline, restore relationships, and protect other members of the community.
A wide range of methods and approaches are used at the discretion of the teacher and staff. Whenever appropriate, parents are kept informed and involved in the disciplining process.
"Knowledge comes from learning but wisdom comes from God."
Attention to outward appearance is an important part of an individual's social development. Personal clothing is basically a matter of individual taste. At the same time, how students dress reveals much about their attitude towards themselves, their peers, and to God. Calling attention to oneself unnecessarily through dress is not an acceptable part of the Christian life. In a Christian school, modesty, moderation, neatness, and cleanliness are of utmost importance. We also realize that the fashions will change from time to time. However, extreme styles of dress are not acceptable as this tends to bring too much attention to the individual and is against the underlying values the school is trying to teach.
Examples of inappropriate dress include clothing that inappropriately reveals the body, torn jeans, clothing that advertises or has slogans or insignias which promote alcohol, drugs or other inappropriate messages which are in opposition to Biblical values. All student dress is subject to interpretation by teachers and administration. Students dressed inappropriately will not be allowed to attend class.
