Good classroom discipline enforced by our teachers, affords every child, guidance in making good decisions about his/her behaviour.  In doing this, the children are afforded the opportunity to learn in a positive, nurturing classroom environment.  It is important for each child to learn to develop self discipline and good work habits, resolve conflicts peacefully and think independently.  Your child deserves the most positive educational climate possible for his/her growth.  We know that together we can make a difference in this process.  Please can parents assist us in this matter.
