at elite academy we Respect each other
The most common feature our students have among each other is the diversity. Diversity of culture, ethnicity, gender, race. This will lead our students to shape their own unique personalities. Therefore, from our perspective as educators, we make sure that our students show mutual respect and tolerance among themselves. There is a fact that we understand very well; with all the differences among human being, we need to respect each other.
What Is Bullying
Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.
In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:
An Imbalance of Power:
Examples of activities we use to teach about bullying include:
- Internet or library research, such as looking up types of bullying, how to prevent it, and how kids should respond
- Presentations, such as a speech or role-play on stopping bullying Discussions about topics like reporting bullying
- Classroom meetings to talk about peer relations
- Creative writing, such as a poem speaking out against bullying or a story or skit teaching bystanders how to help Artistic works, such as a collage about respect or the effects of bullying
- We also have our student councilor always ready and available to work with any students who need extra support in order to address problems and provide support quickly.
At Elite Academy, we help students learn about bullying prevention. We do this by incorporating the topic of bullying prevention in lessons and activities.
School attendance is important
Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your child for success—both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, you help your child get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous behavior and have a better chance of graduating from high school.
When students are absent for fewer days, their grades and reading skills often improve—even among those students who are struggling in school. Students who attend school regularly also feel more connected to their community, develop important social skills and friendships, and are significantly more likely to graduate from high school, setting them up for a strong future.
But when kids are absent for an average of just two days of school per month—even when the absences are excused– it can have a negative impact. These absences can affect kids as early as Kindergarten.
School attendance is important Just 2 missed school days per month = 18 missed days per year.
This is almost one whole month of the 9 month schooling year.

Only items purchased from the school office are acceptable as uniform items.
There are short and long sleeve tops, for winter and summer, along with a sports uniform which should only be worn on days where the students will be playing sports.
All uniform items should be clearly marked with the student's name on the tags, so that they can be easily returned if they become lost.
