Policy Introduction

The classroom is the centre of learning. Learning is based upon the interaction of teachers and students, reflecting Ministry, Board and school curriculum guidelines.

Students are engaged in learning, are consistently on task and are working to become independent learners who demonstrate self discipline, respect for others, and responsible citizenship.

Students balance their approach to academic and extra-curricular pursuits allowing for beneficial results in both areas.

Membership in the broader community – composed of students’ families, neighbouring schools, local residents, community associations and business – is an active commitment.

All behaviour within the Lawrence Park school community is based on the VALUE of:

commitment to hard work and to fulfilling one’s duties
respect for oneself, for others, and for property
responsible to oneself and to others
honesty and integrity
