SEVEN GOLDEN RULES

 

We strongly believe that discipline and control originate from respect towards every part of the KEA community. We have Seven Golden Rules that serve as the basis of the behavioural conduct of the institution:

  • We are gentle - We do not hurt others.
  • We are social - We live amidst unified bonding of love.
  • We are kind and helpful - We do not hurt anybody's feelings.
  • We are obedient - We respect and obey our seniors and teachers.
  • We are honest - We do not cover up the truth.
  • We work hard - We do not waste our own or others' time.
  • We look after property - We do not waste or damage things.

Upholding this philosophy, children adhering to these rules are rewarded with tokens of appreciation, while children intentionally violating them are subjected to pre-notified sanctions. 

KEA is a school that is built on excellence. This is evident in everything that we do, and this is also evident in our boarding houses. School rules are intended to ensure the safety and welfare of pupils and the smooth functioning of the school community. We aim to provide a comfortable, living space for our wards. Each student has a bed, cupboard, trunk etc. There is a separate resident warden for the boys as well as the girls. The goal of our institution is to ensure the independent and responsible development of our pupils. We are committed to providing a safe, secure, suitable learning and living environment for our wards. We aim to encourage students to be self-reliant and to inculcate the habit of studying without prompting.
