his/her obligations and responsibilities as a member of the QCN community and the society as a whole.
In line with this, it is imperative that a student abides the rule of conduct and discipline imposed by the
school, thereby transforming him/her into a mature, self-directed, righteous, morally upright and one
who has developed a sense of responsibility and accountability for his/ her actions.

COMMITTEE ON DISCIPLINE

Counsellor, and Class Adviser. The members convene for deliberations regarding probations, re-
admission, exclusion, or expulsions/ dismissal of students. The decision of the Committee on the
Discipline is final, except in cases of expulsion, which is subject to the approval of the Secretary of
Education.

POLICY GUIDELINES

Quezon Colleges of the North believes that any act committed by the students that demonstrate lack of
discipline, immaturity in attitude or irresponsibility may prove detrimental to the learning process. This
may eventually lead to infringement and violations of rules and regulations set by the School. As such,
QCN has listed down what it considers as offenses and has prescribe corrective measures/ penalties to
make learners realize that they must take full responsibility for their own actions and misdemeanors.

corrective actions and not penalties.

 During school related activities held outside the school campus, like field trips, competitions,
representations and any other similar events.

QCN in another school campus or place.
