The actions set forth below will be considered as routine disciplinary measures for each category and occurrence of offense. It is intended that the penalties delineated below shall be considered the standard penalty to be imposed for the offences described.
In incidents where extreme violations occur, the specified actions may be waived by the school authority in favour of stronger measures such as longer suspensions, expulsion or other appropriate action. Similarly, the school authority may at the hearing consider matters in mitigation of the routine disciplinary measures.
It is the expectation of OJOMOH EDUCATION CENTRE that all students uphold the biblical standard of conduct and behaviour while both on and off campus. Students will pledge to uphold the school’s standards against cheating, using indecent language, alcoholic beverages as well as abstain from sinful sexual activities. Students will maintain the Christian Standards in courtesy, kindness, morality, and honesty.
Students of OJOMOH EDUCATION CENTRE will uphold the code of conduct 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The student’s conduct should be in line with biblical standards. Anything outside of these standards will result in probation or dismissal from school.
Discipline will be conducted in an orderly manner and will coincide with biblical standards and beliefs. Teachers will reference scripture when dealing with disciplinary issues in order to instruct students from a biblical perspective.

We all: students, teachers, administrators, support staff and community members must show pride by doing our share to make the school a better place to learn and work. One of the main goals of the school staff is to develop self-discipline in all students.
