HOËRSKOOL VRYHEID SKOOLREËLS

Hoërskool Vryheid het ‘n trotse tradisie waaraan baie toegewyde ouers, personeel en leerders deur die jare gebou het. Dit is ‘n eer en voorreg om aan die skool verbonde te wees en daarom moet ons ten alle tye daarna streef om in ons gemeenskaplike doel van opvoeding te slaag. Die skool se leuse, Tenax Propositi Vinco, (deur volharding word sukses behaal) moet altyd met trots bejeën word. Ons doel is om lojaal te wees teenoor almal wat saam met ons deel is van Hoërskool Vryheid. In nakoming van die daargestelde skoolreëls vind opvoeding in ‘n gedissiplineerde milieu plaas en eers dan word die leerders gelei tot verantwoordelikheid, om uiteindelik hul plek in die samelewing te beklee.

STRAFMAATREËLS

Die strafstelsel van die skool is gebaseer op die bogenoemde in nommer 6.

PUNISHMENT:

The punishment system of the school is based on the above mentioned in
number 6.

LET WEL:

Dit is nie die bedoeling om elke moontlike oortreding wat deur ‘n leerder begaan kan word hier te beskryf en straf te bepaal nie. Die beleid is egter altyd om toepaslike straf aan oortredings te koppel. Bo en behalwe bogemelde reëls en gebruike begaan ‘n leerder ‘n oortreding deur enige handeling of versuim wat die goeie orde, goeie naam, eiendom, eer of veiligheid van leerders of personeel aantas, beskadig of benadeel of daartoe kan lei. Dit is die uitsluitlike diskresie van die skoolhoof, of ‘n persoon deur hom daartoe gemagtig, om te bepaal of sodanige handeling of versuim ‘n oortreding van bogemelde bepaling daarstel.

N.B.

It is not the intention to describe every offence a learner may commit and to determine punishment for it. The policy, however, is to link appropriate punishment to offences. Over and above the abovementioned rules and customs a learner commits an offence by any action of neglect that damages or harms the good order, good name, property, honour or safety of learners or staff of by any action that can lead to it. It is the sole discretion of the principal, or a person so authorised by him, to determine if such action of neglect constitutes an offence of the abovementioned provision.

SLOT:

Dit is ons gemeenskaplike doel as ouers en personeel om ons opvoedingstaak as plig teenoor God, ons naaste en ons kinders ten alle tye na te kom. Ons as leerders moet dus hierdie roeping respekteer en gesag aanvaar en gevolglik die reëls nakom. Indien die reëls oortree word, sal leerders gestraf word na gelang van die erns van die oortreding. Die finale beslissing berus in die hande van die skoolhoof, in samewerking met die Beheerliggaam van Hoërskool Vryheid, waar verlang.

CONCLUSION:

It is the common aim of both parents and teachers to fulfil our task of educating children to be moral, responsible adults. We as adults have to respect this vocation, and accept this calling. The rules are designed to assist our educative task. If these rules are transgressed, learners will be punished in accordance with the seriousness of the transgression, but the final decision will be vested in the authority of the principal in conjunction with the Governing Body if necessary.
