Code of Conduct

Charles G. Fraser Public School has developed a Code of Behaviour that is applied consistently by all staff. Students know that they will be praised and recognized for good behaviour. Conversely, students know exactly what consequence to expect if they have difficulty following the Code of Behaviour. This Code of Behaviour has been very successful for us.
