Rules of conduct
It’s “common” sense!
Residence means communal living. Any densely populated living environment must be properly designed and organized to strike a balance between residents’ lives as individuals and as a group. Being surrounded by children of diverse ages, interests and needs gives residents a well-rounded experience that teaches them about tolerance, patience, helping others, personal responsibility and independence. The coaching they receive from adults requires sensitivity and tact, as well as a structure that is defined yet flexible.
There is one simple rule, which the students will tell you themselves: “We all show respect for everyone.” This is the foundation. Related to this concept are other core tenets of communal living, such as respect for property (a place for everything and everything in its place), respect for difference, equality and tolerance.
