The medium of instruction at Princess Park College Rosslyn is English and any learner seeking admission must show sufficient proficiency in the language to cope with and benefit from the education offered at the school.
This policy is in accordance with the wishes of the community we serve. Parents chose to send their children to Princess Park College Rosslyn so that their children can be taught all subjects, other than Afrikaans, in English so that English as the “International” language can be mastered.
The school upholds cultural diversity and, as language is an integral part of one’s culture and identity, we strive to inculcate a sense of value and worth in all languages.
As such, the languages offered at Princess Park College Rosslyn are as follows:
English Home Language
Afrikaans First Additional Language
All the educators at Princess Park College Rosslyn are English speakers and are most proficient and comfortable teaching in this language. Every effort is made to ensure that Afrikaans is taught by educators proficient in that language.
The school follows the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) for all subjects and grades. The language of instruction and learning (LOLT) is English, and Afrikaans is taught as a First Additional Language. CAPS is a comprehensive curriculum framework that sets out the learning outcomes, content, assessment standards, and teaching methodologies for each subject and grade. It aims to provide a well-rounded education that prepares students for the demands of the modern world, including social, economic, and technological changes. The use of English as the LOLT is intended to equip students with the language skills they need to succeed in the global arena. Meanwhile, the teaching of Afrikaans as a First Additional Language supports multilingualism and cultural diversity in South Africa.
Code of Conduct
We are using a strict code of conduct for our learners. This code of conduct is in place to ensure that all of our students have a safe and positive learning environment.
The code of conduct includes rules and expectations for our students’ behavior, such as being respectful to their peers and teachers, listening attentively during class, and refraining from disruptive behavior. By following these guidelines, we can create a classroom atmosphere that is conducive to learning and personal growth.
At Princess Park, our ultimate goal is to provide a high-quality education to our students, and we believe that by enforcing a strict code of conduct is an important part of achieving that goal.
I am committed to ensuring that every child in my classroom has the opportunity to succeed and grow both academically and socially.
The purpose of this policy is to put a procedure in place to reward learners for special achievement and behaviour that is in line with Princess Park College values.
The merit system works as follows:
Learners are encouraged to live the values of this school
Learners are encouraged to always do their best in all aspects
Certificates for special achievements are handed out during prize giving ceremonies
Educators are encouraged to identify positive behaviour aligned with this school’s values
Educators are encouraged to incentivise learners with merits – focus on the positive.
A merit’s function (during assembly) should be held at least once a term. Learners’ name and photo will be posted on FB. Top 3 learners in each grade receives a prize
Merit awards can also be handed to learners on an ad hoc basis
Merits will be rewarded at the beginning of each term.Learners will start with 0 at the beginning of each term.
At the end of the year positive merits of all four terms will be added together and top 5 learners in each grade will be rewarded.
The main purpose of the Demerit system is to incentivise learners to behave in line with Princess Park College values and thereby creating a culture of discipline and a value-based school. The main purpose is not to punish negative behaviour.
The demerit system works as follows:
Learners start with 0 points
Recognitions are given for positive actions for example assisting and educator
Violations are for misconduct for example homework not done.
Recognitions and violations are indicated separately on the Conduct Report of the learner.
“Detention Attended” is automatically added when a learner has sat detention and this reduces the violations total of a learner with 50 points.
The learner should attend detention should the violations reach -50.
Where a learner does not attend detention, “detention bunked” will be noted with -30.
Should the violations again reach -50 the learner must attend for a second time.
Should the violations then reach -50 for a third time the parents must be called in for a Disciplinary Discussion.The learner will attend detention for the third time.
Should the violations continue, a Disciplinary Hearing will be held.
The Disciplinary Chairperson will decide on the appropriate punishment which could include suspension.“Suspension complete” will be added as an informative mark once the learner returns from suspension.
Should violations total reach -500 before the end of term 3 a transfer letter will be issued to the learner immediately to enable the learner to attend another school the following year.One term notice will be given to the parent.However, in the case of Suspension or Expulsion no notice will be given and the punishment will be effective immediately. This is done to accommodate schools having early registration dates.
Should the violations total reach -350 before the end of term 3 a Conditional Re-Administration letter will be issued to the learner indicating under which conditions the learner will be allowed back the following year. If these conditions are not followed the following year, the learner will be expelled at the end of that particular term.However, in the case of Expulsion no notice will be given and the punishment will be effective immediately.
If there is a serious transgression (example possession of drugs or alcohol etc.) the outcome will be immediate expulsion.
For certain transgressions a learner may be suspended until the hearing.
A summary of the Merit and Demerit list will be sent to parents once a term.
Parents can appeal the outcome of a Disciplinary Hearing in writing within 7 days of the outcome of the hearing.The grounds for the appeal must be clearly indicated.The outcome of the appeal may be one of the following:
The outcome is upheld
The outcome is overturned
The sanction can be changed
