  • Passengers in student driven vehicles must seek permission from an Assistant Principal, after having the written consent of their own parents/caregivers and the parents of the student driving the vehicle.

    Glenunga International High School is a drug free zone. All students are expected to take positive action to prevent and avoid any drug related activity at Glenunga International High School. Passing any drug related information on to an adult is the appropriate and responsible action. Students must not ingest any illegal, or any non-medically prescribed drugs, or alcohol. Students must not bring to school, have in their possession, while in school uniform, on school property, or on any school related activity, any paraphernalia which may be related to drugs, including matches, lighters, papers, pipes, or other such items, equipment or substances. Students must not offer to sell, or sell to other students any drug, including alcohol, marijuana and cigarettes. Students must not be in the company of other students who are involved with any activity, related to drugs or alcohol, indicated above.

    Students need to move in an orderly manner at all times and in all areas of the school, keeping to the left in corridors and on the stairs. Students need to:

  • use the movement slip in the diary during lessons
  • use the computer room and resource centre booking slips
  • exercise care when walking through the carpark areas
  • keep at least 5 metres from the fence and within the permitted areas of the school
  • walk bicycles through the school grounds
  • travel to and from school and move to and from bus stops in a safe and courteous manner.

    Student drivers and passengers need to seek permission from the Deputy Principal through the Year Level Co-ordinator to drive to and from school, or to be a passenger with a student driver.

    Students suspended or excluded from school are not permitted to visit or attend the school or school related functions.

    5. School Uniform
    All students are to wear full school uniform at all times. If a student is not in full school uniform, he/she must report to the Student Services Office between 8.30-8.40am and negotiate a loan item. The loan item is to be returned at the end of the school day. School uniform is a very important safety issue.
  • If a student does not negotiate a loan item at that time they will receive a detention
  • Non-attendance at any detention will result in 2 further detentions; non-attendance at either of these will result in suspension.

    I have read and understood the code of conduct. I agree to uphold the reputation of Glenunga International High School by abiding by the code of conduct in all activities related to the school.
