Students are required to have their Student Journal with them at all times. These Journals are distributed by the Form Masters in September. Lost or mislaid journals must be replaced immediately.
The Student Journal is school property and must be cared for as such. All homework, both written and oral, should be recorded in the Student Journal each day, at the end of each class.
The Student Journal should be available for inspection at all times by either the school or your parents. Failure to present the journal regularly (including at morning sign-in if requested) constitutes unacceptable behaviour and may lead to suspension from class. Explanations regarding incomplete homework will normally be recorded in the journal by parents. Teachers will use the journal to communicate with parents regarding a student’s school performance. Parents are required to check and sign the journal at the end of each week.
The Student Journal must be maintained properly. Students are not permitted to draw on or otherwise deface the journal or its cover. The removal of any page from the journal is a serious offence. It is also a serious matter if a student loses his journal. He is obliged to report it to his Form Master at the earliest opportunity. There is a replacement charge of €15.
The current hard-back format makes it easier for students to maintain it well and not to lose it.
