STRONGLY RECOMMENDED ETIQUETTE
A smile and greeting cost nothing, but they contribute to a pleasant and cordial atmosphere, so use them liberally. Punctuality is the essence of good manners and the school places great emphasis on this attribute.
Everyone at YAGSHS deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Verbal abuse, profanity and rude gestures are unacceptable behaviours and will be dealt with severely.
School uniforms must be worn at all times to classes and to all official school functions, unless otherwise decreed by the Senior Housemistress.
School uniforms must be worn on all official school excursions and when leaving and returning to school from exeats and vacations, unless otherwise decreed by the Senior Housemistress.
It is the students’ responsibility to keep their school uniform clean, in good repair and looking neat. The way in which a student wears her uniform should demonstrate pride in YAGSHS and be a reflection of the quality and discipline of our students. No jewelery should be worn while in uniform.
- Students should not allow their finger nails to grow long and they must not wear make-up or nail varnish.
- Students must keep their hair in tidy short style. No headgear or hats are permitted. Girls are not allowed to plait their hair. Hair should not be permed or straightened or jerried. The school reserves the right to determine what is appropriate.
Students do not need to bring medicines to school, except for those who are asthmatic. The school has a visiting doctor who visits the sick bay from time to time, apart from other emergencies. Charges for laboratory tests and medicines will be debited to your daughter’s accounts for the term.
All medicines should be deposited at the school dispensary.
