Students at MIST should have the opportunity to learn in a safe and respectful learning environment. They should be encouraged to care for each other and yet strive for the very best that they can achieve. Positive and clear guidelines for behavior management will help our community nurture and realize the potential of the children in our care.
Behaviour management is the responsibility of the entire school community. This is reflected in the policy, which clearly outlines the roles, expectations, and consequences of behaviour at the school. Parents, teachers, and students are involved in the process of developing and then implementing the framework.
To provide an environment where we feel:
Encourage positive behavior:
Discourage negative behavior: where necessary a support group will be established to develop a behavior modification plan.
We focus on preventative measures. Students adhere to the school motto "Caring and Courageous" and do a number of activities and exercises dealing how to treat each other. Low student to teacher ratio also makes it possible to attend to problems when they are small; Cases of bullying are dealt quickly and necessary disciplinary is taken according to the behavior policy.
We are pleased to provide a separate spaces for our preschool and kindergarten students.
