  • If you wish to celebrate your child’s birthday in school, please inform the class teacher at least a day in advance. You may bring in a cake, chips and packets of juice. Please do not send ‘goody bags’ or elaborate invitation cards in the form of a gift as they will not be distributed in school.

  • The Library is a quiet place. There should be no talking. If you must say something, it should be in a whisper.
  • No eating or drinking is allowed in the Library.
  • A book may be borrowed for up to two weeks. If a child issues a book for two weeks, he/she may not borrow another one (during the weekly class) until it is returned.
  • Any damaged book found on the shelves should be given to the Librarian/teacher.
  • If a book is accidentally damaged while in your care, please make sure it is given back to the Librarian. Please do not put it back in the pile in the hope that it will not be noticed.
  • If a book is lost or damaged in your care a flat rate of Rs.400/- will be charged.

We hope you will help your children use the Library effectively and encourage them to read a variety of books. Kindly teach your children to care for these books by not only handling them carefully, but also by keeping them out of reach of younger siblings. They should not eat while reading books, as the pages may get greasy. Furthermore, when they are packing their books in their bags, they must make sure they do not put them in the bags with water bottles and left over snacks.

  • Long leave is granted at the school’s discretion after parents submit the long leave application form. To be eligible for long leave, the period of leave should be at least one full academic year. To guarantee your child’s place, fees must be paid by the 20th of May for the following academic year.
  • It is expected that a student on long leave will be enrolled in a recognized educational institution for the entire period of the absence and academic progress reports must be submitted to the school on rejoining Bay View Academy.
  • The school must be informed at least one month prior to the student rejoining school.
  • Parents wishing to withdraw their child must inform the school at least one quarter prior to the withdrawal date. In the case of a student who will not rejoin school in the upcoming August session, the school should be informed no later than April 30th of the session the child is currently attending.
