General Rules

Pupils must be on time and remember their manners at all times. Pupils must enter the dining hall in an orderly fashion and refrain from noisy or unruly behaviour. Every pupil must scrape and stack their own crockery and cutlery used.

Dress

Footwear must be worn but no studs/spikes. No hats to be worn. No Earphones or cell phones allowed in the dining hall. Pupils must be appropriately dressed at all times.

Sanatorium

The Woodridge Sanatorium is a well-equipped clinic manned by two experienced and qualified nursing sisters. It is situated opposite the Preparatory School offices.

Clinic Times

Because young people sometimes try to avoid classes by visiting the Sanatorium, we have a strict policy regarding consulting hours. Pupils may consult the sister on duty as follows:

Monday – Friday

Saturday

Sunday

Visiting

Pupils admitted to the Sanatorium are not allowed visitors (this includes chatting to friends at the windows). When pupils are in the Sanatorium for a long time, visiting is at the sister’s discretion and is limited to non-infectious patients only.

Personal Medication

When visiting the Sanatorium, the nurses must be notified of ALL medication the pupil is using, as some drugs interact negatively with each other. All medicines are to be kept by the Sanatorium, or with the House Parent if the Sanatorium staff approve.

Electronic Policy

Pupils admitted to the SAN may not have any access to mobile phones/ computers/ ipods etc. from 08:00 – 16:00.
