Discipline, Manners and Respect

At Bergvliet Primary our aim is to ensure firm, but fair discipline with dignity. We believe that positive discipline and encouragement can often reap better rewards and motivation than punishment. Children have rights, but also responsibilities. If they do not act responsibly and respect the rights of others, the consequences, unfortunately, will be disciplinary action.

At Bergvliet Primary our children are expected to show exemplary manners and respect at home, at school, and in public places. Please encourage them to greet politely and if they are not sure of the name of the individual they are greeting to use Good Morning Sir or Ma’am. Our mission statement makes reference to producing well-rounded individuals and the value of good manners and respect goes a long way to achieving this.
