Code of Behaviour

​J. H. Bruns Collegiate is a welcoming, safe and caring school community – an environment in which effective teaching and learning occurs.

We believe that…effective teaching and learning occurs best in a positive school climate where students behave appropriately.

Students and staff need to demonstrate the importance of respect for themselves, others and our property.

Our Goal is…

Our goal is for students to achieve self-discipline. Our expectations revolve around two beliefs. These powerful words guide the standard of behaviour at our school.


We must:

  • behave responsibly
  • be respectful to self and others
  • show concern for and tolerance of others
  • take responsibility for our actions

Students are expected to:

  • demonstrate respect for the rights, roles and responsibilities of other students and staff
  • demonstrate respect for the school and the property of others
  • adhere to school policies respecting appropriate use of electronic mail and the Internet, including the prohibition of materials that the school has determined to be objectionable
  • attend school regularly and arrive on time for school
  • follow guidelines for appropriate school attire
  • ensure that all assignments and tests demonstrate academic honesty

Staff is expected to play a critical role by modeling respect and supoprt for the above expectations.

Staff will intervene when students:

  1. Do not follow the school expectations of respect and responsibility 
  2. Do not maintain academic integrity (involved in plagiarism, cheating etc) 
  3. Do not uphold their academic responsibilities around homework, assignment completion and test preparation

The following will not be tolerated on school site and will result in immediate referral to administration:

  • Gang involvement
  • Possessing a weapon, as “weapon” is defined in section 2 of the Criminal Code (Canada)

Interventions, including disciplinary consequences for violating the Code of Conduct, in all situations are intended to preserve the dignity and self worth of all involved in the disciplinary action.

Interventions/consequences may include:

  • Counselling
  • Formal conference
