Attitude to Teachers
- Students should look upon their school mates as brothers/ sisters and upon their teachers and superiors as fathers / mothers.
- Respect every teacher whether of your own class or not. Be grateful towards who taught you in the past. Show your teachers those exterior signs of reverence to which they are entitled to, such as, greeting them whenever you meet them.
- Be convinced that your teachers deeply feel their serious obligation of promoting your welfare in the best way they possibly can, and that in advicing, commanding and correcting you, they have nothing else in view but your own good.
- After Piety, study is most praiseworthy. Therefore your first obligation must consist in doing the tasks assigned to you by your teachers.
- Always rise when your teachers enter you class and again when they leave. If they delay in coming, do not make any noise but wait for them in your place in silence reviewing your lesson or reading some good books.
- During class avoid whispering or interrupting.
Attitude to School Mates
- Strive to edify your school mates by your good example at all time. In fact no sermon is more efficacious than good example.
- Never make fun of those who are backward in their studies or not so quick to grasp the lessons. Let there be no ridiculing of any one on account of any physical defect. What you laugh at or despise in others may some day befall you.
- Gladly help one another at recreation, make no distinctions in the choice of your companions. Let no one be slighted in any game and let there be no selfishness. If there be need to make a sacrifice for the sake of the team let it be made cheerfully.
- When you are asked by a superior regarding the conduct of some one of your companions, answer to the best of your knowledge especially when it is a matter of preventing or remedying some evil. To be silent would not be beneficial to your companion and would be offensive to God. Always avoid exaggeration and speak truthfully.
Behaviour at School
- To write or draw on the black board (except when called upon to do so), to write offensive words, soil walls or anything else are things absolutely to be avoided.
- Take great care of your text books, copy books and other belonging. Beware of appropriating your neighbours property even if it be the smallest thing. Should you find a lost article give it at once to the school office.
- Keep the floor clean by allowing no paper or ink to fall on it. Cleanliness and purity of soul are reflected by a clean and neat exterior.
- Speak no ill of your mates or of the discipline or management of the school. Everyone is perfectly free to remain or not remain in the school.
- Always speak well of your school and of your teachers.
- Performances on the stage of the school auditorium are permitted for your instruction and entertainment. They should help to bring out the fine quality of your heart and never be an occasion for the least sin. Attend them cheerfully and with gratitude to your superiors for permitting them for you.
- To enter the auditorium in such a hurry or even to run the risk of hurting your companions to try to go ahead of others in order to secure a better seat, to stand when you should be seated, to shout, to whistle, to boo or hiss or in any other way give evidence of disapproval or dislike, are things absolutely to be avoided.
