The Mission of Hera International School

One of the most important responsibilities a school has is to establish a positive environment that contributes to learning.

 Students are accountable for appropriate behavior at all times during the school day. Every endeavor is made to provide rewards and to encourage positive behavior; however, behavior that negatively affects the learning environment cannot be tolerated. Negative behavior in the school environment adversely affects student learning.

The school and the home are a cooperative team working together for the future of your child. Neither the school nor the parents can do it alone. We need your support in helping to teach and sustain appropriate behaviors. Most importantly, at this time, we ask you to sit with your child and to let him/her know that you support the school and that we are all working together.


The mission of Hera International School is to empower our students so they are able to lead and succeed.


1. School Expectations

 Each student and staff member has the right to experience a safe and friendly school environment where all individuals are treated with respect.

Listening to each other helps us all get to know each other, to understand our environment, and to acquire new knowledge and most of all, it teaches us how to understand one another.

We all learn how to set goals for the day, the week, the year, for a lifetime and how to develop internal discipline and strategies to reach those goals.

We all learn how to set priorities and how to accomplish things in life that give academic success as well as those that give personal gratification.

 We all learn to accept responsibility for our actions and to understand that each of us is responsible for the choices we make in our lives.

Overall, we learn to create, within our lives and within the school, conditions that foster, enable and release creativity, talent, ability and potential.

We expect the best from ourselves and from others.





2. Arrival and Departure Procedure

·         Arrival - Doors open at 6:45 – students should not enter school before this time.

·         Students should arrive on time for our Morning assembly that begins at 7:25.

·         Their first class begins at 7:45am.

·         Departure - Parents are expected to pick up their children on time.

·         Dismissal for Pre K – Kg is 12:30pm to 1:00pm. Please collect the students between this time.

·         Private students Grades 1-8 1:40pm.

School closes at 2:00pm after this time the students will be left in the administration.


3. Attendance Policy

·         Attendance is taken at 7:35am each day for grade 1-8 students.

The successful progress of students depends on prompt and regular attendance.

We expect students to attend school every day to receive the maximum benefits of instruction.

Parents will be notified if a child is late on a repeated basis.

Habitual tardiness gives the child the impression that education is not important and does not help a student develop a sense of internal discipline.

Arriving on time is the beginning of showing good organizational skills.

As with any absence, any work missed may be made up within a reasonable period of time.


4. Early Dismissal from School

No student will be released to the nanny or driver without express permission from the parent. Permission via a telephone call may only be accepted by a member of administration.


5. Excused Absences or Tardiness

An excused absence or tardy is one for which no negative consequence is assessed against the student. Only a written note from a parent or guardian may excuse students who are late to school for a valid reason or who need to leave school early.

Students should give their notes to their Class  Teacher.

It is the responsibility of the student to obtain all missed work and to make up the work in a reasonable amount of time. Work missed due to an excused absence must still be made up.


6. Discipline and Behavior (Rules, Consequences and Rewards)

1.      No verbal or physical abuse is permitted at any time.

2.      We do not tell stories and we do not try to get other people in trouble.

3.      We keep our hands, feet and other objects to ourselves and respect each other’s space.

4.      We are expected to treat others as we would like to be treated.

5.      No mobile phones, cameras, laptops, video games or other electronic devices are permitted on school grounds without express permission. Any electronic device accidentally brought to school is to be turned in at the start of the day and picked up after school.

6.      Confiscated devices will be turned in to administration and returned at a time to be determined. Parents will be notified of repeat incidents.


STUDENT duty towards the school.

·         You have the right to expect that you will be treated with respect.

·         You have the responsibility to treat others with respect.

·         You have the right to a safe place to learn, free of disruption.

Class celebrations are held at the discretion of the teacher and administration for special occasions and holidays. We ask parents to be careful in what is provided for celebrations and parties. If there is a doubt as to what is appropriate, please consult the teacher. Please alert the teacher ahead of time (at least one day ahead) if you, as a parent, want to send food for a celebration.


9. Homework (HW)

All students are required to attend class ready to learn.

Each student must have the correct academic book(s) for the class, pen/pencil and paper, and completed HW.

Completing HW assignments is a responsibility that students have for themselves and their class.

Parents should make sure that an area is set aside for doing HW and time for HW to be completed at home. They are also asked to monitor whether HW is completed.

As our students are being educated at the academic level appropriate for their ability, we ask that the child be encouraged to complete HW without assistance.

All students should read 20 minutes or more each night


It is especially important for middle school students to study every night, regardless of whether there is a specific homework assignment.



10. Bus regulations.

If your child is travelling on the school bus then the following rules have to be maintained.

o   Your child must sit in the bus properly

o   Your child must not throw rubbish on the bus.

o   Your child must be on time to the bus.

Student and Parent Councils…


"Our children mean everything to us, why would parents or guardians does not want to be involved?"

Hera International School strongly believes in a close liaison amongst parents, students & school  

What does parental involvement in children’s learning mean?


There are three main ways parents can get involved in supporting their children’s learning:

*      Learning at home: Parents are the first and ongoing educators of their own children and, as such, should receive information and support to help develop their child’s learning at home, in the community and at school.


*      Home/School partnership: Schools must be open to the involvement of parents in the work they do and they should consider ways of providing information that help parents engage with school and their children’s education.


Hera International School masters are always with you for better prospect and high achievements.

Tips for Parents

Be generous with praise:

Observe your child carefully and comment on the things that are done well. When you see an area that needs improvement, find a positive way to talk about it with your child.


Encourage “Personal Best”:

Help your child by encouraging him or her to do the best in school and at home. Remember, “personal best” does not mean “perfect”, and learning is not the same as high grades. Children, like adults, need the freedom to make mistakes and to learn from them.


Make learning a priority:

Your attitude toward school attendance, education and involvement in the school makes a strong and lasting impression on your child. Show your child, by example, that learning is a priority.


Show interest in School Work:

·         Talk about school each day.

·         Ask to see class work.

·         Have your child read aloud to you.

·         Read to and with your child from a variety of material in your first language.

·         Encourage appreciation for good efforts.


Offer Suggestions for Success:

Help your child use the following strategies to improve performance in school:


·         Read the assignment when it is given.

·         Keep a list of new vocabulary.

·         Review notes before a test.
