School Regulations


1.- To promote the formation and development of the students’ personality through a harmonic relation and cooperation between school, home and homeland, as expressed in the school motto: “Home and School make the Homeland”.

2.- Encourage that every educational action fosters, develops and consolidates an integration of the student’s personality in their intellectual, volitive and emotional aspects, as well as the knowledge of scientific techniques and interpersonal relationships.

3.- Form fundamental values so that students can freely develop a sense of justice, dignity, beauty, truth, belonging and love.

4.- Foster the complete understanding and earnest acceptance of the educational principle that makes the student an active agent and protagonist of the teaching and learning process.

5.- Establish that the “bilingual school” feature means this is an Argentinean school, identified with the principles of our nation and nationality, in which the English language is taught as a particular specialty to train our students for their future insertion in the modern world.


These School Regulations apply in its general aspects, both for Primary and Secondary. The documents corresponding to the aspects that are particular to each level, which also make up these regulations, must be known by the parents/representatives of the student who will be notified through the school’s official online platform. It is necessary that parents, teachers and students know and accept these rules, which will make possible everyone’s moral and intellectual growth; in an environment of mutual respect and harmony. We ask of you to read this document carefully and to keep it in your possession, understanding that signing it implies the complete knowledge and acceptance of these regulations.

• Cooperate with everything related to the comprehensive education of their children.

• Maintain a correct behaviour both inside and outside the institution, following the cohabitation rules just for the fact of wearing St. Brendan’s uniform.
• Students from Primary School should refrain from wearing earrings, jewellery and cosmetics. They are allowed to wear a wrist watch and a neck chain as long as it is worn under the shirt line.
• Be responsible with the amount of money brought to school. It is because of this that we ask students not to bring substantial amounts of money.
• Do not bring to school: glass bottles, bubble gum, jewellery and valuables, nor toys that represent weapons.
• Students are allowed to bring electronic devices such as cellphones, notebooks, tablets and ebooks. Their care and responsibility will be exclusive of their owners. The school takes no responsibility for their loss, misplacement, breaking or malfunctioning. Their use will be regulated separately and notified to parents in time.
• Always keep in mind that it is completely banned to smoke and consume alcoholic beverages inside the school and outside the school while wearing St. Brendan’s uniform, or while representing the school in an official event.

4. For Primary School, each student will own a notebook for the exchange of information between the school and their homes. This notebook will be checked daily by the parents, who will notify any update or demand. At the same time, they can utilise this means of communication when considered necessary like a personal interview with teachers, communicating changes, reasons for not attending school, etc.

9. In case of sickness, students may present a certificate signed by a medical professional with the diagnosis and date of medical discharge in order to come back to school.

In case the student does not have the credential (due to misplacement or forgetfulness) the student will be denied the opportunity to leave and will have to have lunch in school and pay the fee for the meal the next day. The credential is considered to be a document and as such it should be kept in perfect conditions. In case of misplacement, parents might request a new one.

15. When a primary student, for justified reasons, must leave at noon, their parents or tutor should enter the building and sign a book that has been placed for said purpose, certifying they are taking their child from the school premises; and having previously notified via de Communications Notebook or email to the corresponding office.

17. Parents of those students who, at the end of the day and by any reason, suffer modifications in the way they travel back home; have to notify via the Communications Notebook or via email to the corresponding office (not by phone call).
