The EGGS Code
EGGS is a friendly, helpful, safe and caring school for all members of the community, staff, students and parents.
When students enrol at this school they sign their name to confirm that they will obey the school rules. Rules need to be followed during school hours and during any event associated with the school such as sports games, cultural performances and school trips.
An EGGS student :
- Is well mannered, considerate and friendly to each other, to staff and to visitors.
- Is thoughtful, co-operative, tolerant and punctual.
- Respects other’s right to learn, without interruption and be prepared to learn. This ensures that everyone has a chance to learn without disruption.
- Accepts people for who they are.
- Respects the property of the school and of others.
- Attends all classes.
- Notifies the school before leaving the grounds with a legitimate reason e.g. a doctor’s appointment.
- Wears the correct uniform.
- Supports the school's commitment to sustainability by disposing of litter correctly. Use the recycling and rubbish bins, which are clearly marked and spread throughout the school grounds.
The most important thing to remember is that an EGGS student respects her fellow students, the staff, her parents and the physical environment.
Internet Access and Use
Internet access is available to all students at Epsom Girls Grammar School. The internet offers vast and diverse resources and Web 2.0 tools for both students and staff to facilitate learning.
All Internet access is filtered to block objectionable sites. Students will be closely monitored at all times to ensure use is for school purposes only and a log of all internet traffic is kept for evidential purposes.
The school's Internet connection is network-wide through a Vector EduNet fibre providing up to 1Gb/s local and100Mb/s International connections to and from the school.
Access is a Privilege
Access and use of the Internet through the network at Epsom Girls Grammar School ("the School") is a privilege which the school offers to all students. The terms and conditions under which access is granted are contained in a comprehensive set of guidelines which are given to each student at pre-enrolment. Both student and parent sign the pre-enrolment form acknowledging that they have understood these guidelines and agree to follow them. In order to remain entitled to that privilege each student must at all times follow the guidelines and act in a responsible way when accessing and using the Internet.
Consequences of Failing to Follow the Guidelines
If a student fails to follow the guidelines or does something which the School believes to be an abuse of that privilege, her access to the Internet may be withdrawn and/or other disciplinary or even legal action may be taken if the School considers her actions or the outcome of her actions requires it.
