REPUBLIC Code of Honour
Respect - Give it to get it
In RP, we encourage all students to respect themselves by abiding by the Student Code of Conduct. We firmly believe that respecting members of the RP community ensures that the RP community will respect you too.
Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself. Abraham J. Heschel
Excellence - Good is not enough
All RP students should aim to excel in their academic objectives and in their personal goals. We encourage students to give a hundred percent in ensuring academic excellence and to be at their best behavior at all times, on campus and as RP ambassadors off school premises.
Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude. Ralph Marston
Passion - Do what you love
We encourage all students to immerse themselves in the wide range of student activities RP has to offer. Students will have the chance to pursue their interests, or to try their hands at something new. These activities imbibe the Republic Code of Honour and aim to focus on student character development and enhance social-emotional competencies.
Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow. Anthony J. DAngelo
Unity - Stand strong as one
We believe firmly in the One RP spirit, where students learn to understand and respect one anothers differences. The Problem-based Learning approach and the vast array of student activities encourage students to work together, to give and take, and to support each other in all areas of campus life.
Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success. Henry Ford
Belief - The start of success
The RP approach aims to breed confidence among our students. A confident student believes in oneself, and in turn, has confidence in others. This form of mutual trust ensures positive learning and social relationships, which will serve our students well after they graduate.
Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail. Charles F. Kettering
Leadership - Chart your own destiny
RP encourages all students to take responsibility for their own actions. Being empowered with the ability to chart ones own future is extremely powerful, hence, the emphasis on social-emotional competencies which aim to equip all students to make the right choices. We hope that beyond personal leadership, RP students will eventually be able to lead others.
The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny. Albert Ellis
Integrity - Be true to yourself
All RP students should be honest and do what is right. We encourage all students to take responsibility for their mistakes, and learn from them. A student with integrity is someone who has a clear conscience and can be trusted.
A life lived with integrity - even if it lacks the trappings of fame and fortune, is a shining star in whose light others may follow in the years to come. Denis Waitley
Compassion - Have a kind heart
We hope that all students in RP will eventually look beyond themselves, and reach out to support others in need. The RP community should be one where everyone can rely on one another and no one takes advantage of someone elses weaknesses.
A kind and compassionate act is often its own reward. William Bennett
