Code of Conduct

The Code of Conduct for Zorra Highland Park Public School expects all students be good citizens by following the guiding principles of our Code of Conduct and Dress Code.

The purpose of the Zorra Highland Park School Code of Conduct is to establish and maintain a safe and comfortable atmosphere in the school, on the playground, on the bus and at all school-sponsored events. We begin with the premise that each individual in the school is responsible for his/her own behaviour and that discipline is a shared responsibility of school staff, parents/guardians and students. Our ultimate goal is to assist each student to develop the self-discipline needed to monitor his/her own behaviour so that intervention by adults becomes less necessary.
