Behaviour

School Ethos of Kindness

“Kindness means you are concerned about other people. Kind people think about another person’s feelings and not just their own. They help someone who is in need, and they are kind even when others are not. Kind people never expect anything in return.” University School Staff.

At University School we say YES as we ask students to TAKE CARE of Yourself, Each other and the School (and community). We encourage all students to take responsibility for their own learning and to be mindful and considerate of their peers and empathetic to learning needs of others. At University School we endeavor to support student learning with an approach based on equity where everyone gets what they need rather than equality where everyone gets the same thing. We recognize that each student is unique and requires access to a learning environment where the conditions for success for their personal growth and academic development can be realized.

School Rights and Responsibilities 

The following are the responsibilities and rights that have been developed by students at University School. They represent the rights held by all members of our school community in addition to the responsibilities school community members are expected to uphold.
