School Rules

By a male, under 16 years old, in Chavakali, Kenya
Map of SCHOOL RULES We were all present and the principal came forward and started talking on issues involving the school and the students. For it was our first day he had to read out rules that we were to follow while in school. He started to us and noted that he should not hear of indiscipline cases. He also talked on respect. This was because some of the people did not respect the school prefect. He also told us to take care of our property for there is theft. He stated that if anyone was found stealing or attempting to steel he would have been suspended or even expended.He also talked on bullying. bullying was a crime which was allowed by none into the school.
