Methodist Girls’ School comprises some 2500 interacting pupils and staff with a collective responsibility for sustaining a vibrant nurturing environment for learning and fellowship. To this end, the MGS School Rules have been drawn up to spell out some ways for the MGS community to work together to uphold the glorious tradition of the school motto: To Master, To Grow, To Serve.
Please familiarise yourself with the MGS School Rules, and reflect on how you will make your contribution as you “grow in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man” through the rich heritage and nurturing of the MGS community.
Absence From School
The MGS girl is expected to attend all classes and school activities organized for her. Failing to do so without valid reasons will constitute truancy.
Her absence must be covered by a medical certificate or a parent’s letter, both valid for the entire period of absence.
Absence From Assessment (Tests and Examinations)
A zero mark will be given for missing tests/examinations without a valid reason. The following supporting documents must be produced:
- A valid medical certificate
- Approved official documentation for representation in an inter-school or national competition
Prolonged Absence From School During Term Time
Permission must be sought from the Principal should there be an extenuating reason for a prolonged period of absence during term time. This should be done through an email from parents/guardians stating reason(s) for absence.
The Principal reserves the right to grant/deny permission for absence from school.
