- Teachers at St. Thomas are approachable and are here to guide the students at all times.
- If a student is absent due to illness, the class teacher must be notified immediately and a medical certificate should be sent along with the child when he comes back to school.
- Any loss or damage to the school property caused by the student be made good by their parents/guardians.
- A minimum of 85% attendance for each term is compulsory. Reason for any absence must be explained in a leave letter signed by the parents and an entry must be made in the leave record page in the diary with parent’s signature. For absence of three or more days, Principal’s permission must be taken. Medical certificate must be produced for sick leave.

- You will be allowed to pick up your child either at 10.20 am or at 1.20 pm. We will not send the child with parents at other odd hours unless it’s an emergency.
- ID cards will be issued to parents. Children will be sent along with parent/guardian only if the ID card is produced. In any other exception, they must prior inform the office regarding the child pick up.
- Parents must not call any teacher or van drivers for any matter concerning their children. They must call only the school office.
- If parents wish to celebrate their wards birthday they can do so, by sending chocolates or sweets for their class. Please try to avoid cake cutting. If parents wish to distribute cake, they can do so by packing small pieces of cake separately (as per the class strength) & send. Parents are requested not to send gifts to teachers during their children’s birthdays (and on Teachers’ Day or on any other occasion). If they so desire, they can send light sweets or chocolates for their respective classmates only.
- Parents must not make any kind of demands or requests to give special or lead roles to their children in any school activity. No child will be given a chance to perform solo as per the parents’ request. Selection of students to do any activity will be done in a fair manner considering only the suitability & talent and only the teacher in charge and the Principal will take decisions in these matters.
- Students will not be held back in the school after school hours or sent home earlier without informing the parents through yearbook or a Circular. Parents must verify it from the office immediately if any student reaches home late or early, when there is no such message or circular.
- Parents must plan their summer vacation accordingly if their ward has been referred for Bridge Course.
Parents are requested to go through the Internal assessment Timetable carefully and plan their holidays. If any changes are there in the timetable they will be informed prior.
Children should not be sent to school when they have fever or other physical ailments even during tests or examinations. Students who are having fever and are sent to attend the exam will not be encouraged and will not be allowed to sit for the exam next day too.
Under any circumstances, re-examinations will not be conducted for any student.
We aim to foster self- discipline, encouraging students to take responsibility for their own actions, through a disciplinary system, which is firm yet, fair. We expect good behaviour both within the school and on the journey to and from school. We expect students to show tolerance, consideration and respect for others. We expect them to be punctual, to work hard and allow others to do likewise. The school is divided into four houses and each house has junior and senior prefects who constantly monitor the attitude, behaviour and mannerisms.
