Financial Dealing with the School
All school fees/financial obligations to the school are to be paid directly to the Finance Office of the school and a proper receipt obtained. Guardians and the students are not supposed to make any material or monetary payment to any member of the staff for service rendered.
Any financial dealings directly with a staff member in payment of service rendered in connection with the schooling of the students is a very serious offence and makes the students liable for withdrawal.
The use and wearing of jewellery and ornaments during school hours and in the premises is strictly prohibited.
Our philosophy of discipline seeks to encourage and develop self-control. It is a process to assist students to live by right principles. We believe self-discipline is a necessity in the maturing process.
Discipline enhances learning. Each teacher is given the responsibility of enforcing classroom regulations in accordance with school philosophy and mission statement. The school expects full cooperation from both students and parents in the education of the student and in adherence to all school policies and regulations. Students are expected to abide by theses guide lines. Parents are expected to fully support these guidelines.
The following steps and action will be involved in the disciplinary action:
- Verbal warning / fine / Detention
- Written warning
- Suspension from school
- Dismissal from school
By registration at the school, the student pledges himself/herself to live in accordance with its policies. If anyone feels, after studying these policies, as published in the student hand book that he/she cannot loyally and actively support such policies, he/she is urged not to register at Yangon Adventist Seminary or if already registered, to withdraw upon his/her initiative. A student’s signature on the application form for entrance to the school constitutes a pledge that he/she will conduct himself/herself in harmony with the standards of the institution. It is also expected that parents or guardians understand these standards.
