EEP College Expectations

The EEP student and his/her family agrees to:

  • Abide by all Emmanuel College Student Expectations including the understanding that the consequences for any level 3, 4 or 5 breach of the Discipline Code may result in the student’s  EEP position being revoked. In such circumstances, the possibility of a partial fee refund is solely at the discretion of the Principal of Emmanuel College
  • Wear correct Emmanuel College uniform for the duration of the exchange (the school will endeavour to lend a uniform or provide it at as low a cost as possible).
  • Accept the authority of the host family over the EEP student in all outside-of-school matters. Please refer to the Tyler International documentation related to homestay matters.
  • Pay EEP fees in advance (The costs of voluntary excursions can be made directly by the EEP student at the cashier’s office when applicable).  

EEP Student Expectations

  • The College expects each student to co-operate fully by taking responsibility for his or her own progress by preparing for, and participating in, all classes he or she attends.  Concern must always be shown for the needs of others to pursue their studies without interference or disruption.
  • It is essential that students develop respect for themselves as individuals and as students of the College.  Offensive behaviour, including the use of bad language, alcohol, illegal use or handling of drugs, gambling, stealing, or causing injury of risk to others will not be tolerated.  Breaking the law may result in offenders being asked to leave the College.  Racism and other forms of personal harassment are treated extremely seriously and will not be tolerated or excused. 
  • School uniform, clean and in good repair, must be worn at all functions and sporting fixtures unless otherwise directed.  The College expects students’ hair to look natural, clean and well-groomed.  Jewellery is not permitted with the exception of a watch.  Girls are not to wear make-up, nail polish or earrings, with the exception of plain sleepers or studs.
  • Students must always seek permission to use other people’s property.  Vandalism will not be tolerated.
  • The College encourages participation in the wide range of College courses, cultural activities and sporting pursuits as appropriate.  All students are expected to attend the major annual events, eg. Presentation Night.  As a selected member of any school team, group or society, the student must accept all commitments of that membership. 
  • The College expects that students will recognise that there are certain legal responsibilities involved in their attendance at the College.  Students may not leave the school grounds for any purpose during the College day without obtaining a special leave form from the student services office.  Except in the case of illness, a student must be in attendance on all days on which the College is open unless leave has been granted in advance by the Principal.  When a student is absent, the College office should be notified by 8:30am on the morning of the absence.  After any absence from the College, a student must produce a note signed by a parent or guardian, for his or her Mentor Group Teacher.
