  • The Principal, in consultation with the relevant Year Head and Liaison Teacher, reserves the right to remove any member of the Student Council during the school year if the member’s lack of good discipline should warrant it.
  • The Principal and Staff also reserve the right to veto any individual whose discipline has been poor during the previous school year.
