Discipline & Welfare Committee
The welfare of students at the College, their progress, attainment and development can only be effectively secured in an environment which is safe and well ordered and where necessary rules and sanctions are applied in a fair, consistent and proportionate manner and where achievement and effort are properly recognized and rewarded. The behavior of most students at the College is at least good, if not outstanding. Students are generally well motivated, respectful of each other and of staff and supportive of the ethos of the College. Where behavior falls below an acceptable standard, a verbal rebuke is often a sufficient response by a member of staff. Because of the generally high standard, poor behavior by some students is more conspicuous than would otherwise be the case. Nevertheless, the emphasis of relationships between staff and students should always be on praise and reward rather than criticism and sanction
The primary objective of the Discipline and welfare committee is to address and effectively solve various student related matters. Discipline and welfare committee is a bridge between students and authorities. The committee has to maintain a balance between student’s demands/problems and feasibility of solution provided by authorities.
