As a student of Snow Herons Tang Soo Do (SHTSD) you are expected to conduct yourself at all times in a way that demonstrates respect for the SHTSD, your fellow students, parents, instructors and class assistants.
You are an ambassador for the Snow Herons Tang Soo Do Club, and you are expected to behave in a way that enhances the reputation of the association and all of its students, parents, instructors and assistants. This is vital to maintain our traditional Martial Arts values, codes, principles and purposes.
Students are reminded that bullying is not permitted
Bullying is defined as: behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally.
Students are reminded that they should behave in a sensible and appropriate manner at all times and respect each other so that.
All students have the opportunity to learn.
Involvement of parents
Parents and guardians who accept a place for their child with the Snow Herons Tang Soo Do Club undertake to uphold the Student Conduct, Codes, Principles and Purposes of both the Snow Herons Tang Soo Do Club, The Educational Martial Arts System (TEMAS) and the policies and regulations of the school that your child attends.
In the event of particularly serious breeches of the behavioural code e.g. physical assault, persistent bullying, theft, or by failing to moderate behaviour that has resulted in the student being asked to sit out of class, or leave the premises it may be necessary to suspend a student. Suspension will either be:
- A one lesson suspension – the student is withdrawn from all contact with other students to allow the student to understand that attendance is a privilege.
- Termly suspension – the student is withdrawn from all classes for the remainder of the fixed term.
- Full Exclusion - the student is permanently withdrawn from SHTSD.
SHTSD Chief Instructor Master Andrews will immediately contact the student / parents via email in the event of a students being suspended outlining why the sanction has been imposed, how long the suspension will be or why a full exclusion has been applied. Master Andrews will invite the student / parents to attend a meeting to discuss what can be done to support the student so that the behaviour is not repeated and to reinforce the gravity of the sanction and any further breaches of the SHTSD student code.
Permanent exclusion will only be applied if all other measures have failed to resolve the problem.
