Punctuality – There is a zero tolerance policy for students who turn up late for class. Homework – All students are required to do all of their homework every day. Foreign students are expected to attempt the homework at the very least. Smoking – Smoking in the school building is not permitted at any time and is punishable by law. It is not permitted to leave the school building or grounds between classes to smoke. Behaviour – Children are not permitted to speak during class or interrupt their teachers. Children are expected to be quiet and walk in an orderly fashion when in the school corridors. Foreign students have to integrate into the class – teachers cannot dedicate all their time to one student. Results – In Ireland the minimum pass rate is 40%. Foreign students are expected to pass their class tests. Sports/School Clubs – Most schools offer students the chance to partake in sporting activities as well as after-school clubs. We advise students to get involved in one or two activities as it enriches the school experience.
