Waar twyfel bestaan t.o.v. toepassing, moet kosgangers die personeel spreek, asook in
gevalle waar die reëls miskien nie voorsiening maak nie.

Personeel, Huisvader of die Skoolhoof bespreek, alvorens ouers gekontak word.

17.
Geen telefoonoproepe mag gedurende studietye en na die stiltetyd klok gemaak of ontvang
word nie.NB.Selfone mag nie na “ligte uitut” gebruik word nie.
18.
Bespaar elektrisiteit deur jou kamerlig gedurende die dag (of as jy nie daar is nie), af te
skakel.
19.
Beskerm jouself deur op te let na die “digitale voetspore” wat jy laat, deur nie
inkriminerende opmerkings te maak op FB ens. nie. Sodra iets op FB of Twitter geplaas is,
word dit die wêreld ingestuur. Beskerm ook jou privaatheid. Wees daarop bedag om nie
ander te “boelie” met opmerkings nie en indien jy kwesbaar voel of deur ander op die
sosiale netwerke geboelie word, of dalk iets geplaas het waaroor jy spyt is, staan ons deure
altyd oop vir jou om daaroor te gesels. Dit is nooit nodig om minderwaardig of seergemaak
te voel deur die reaksie van ander op sosiale netwerke nie. Kom gesels asb. met ons.
20.
Dink altyd aan die ander persoon voordat jy iets doen en respekteer mekaar en mekaar se
besittings deur jou taalgebruik en optrede. Vloekwoorde dui slegs op ‘n gebrek aan
woordeskat en die onvermoë om jouself te kan uitdruk. Waak dus daarteen – dit hoort nie
by ons seuns nie.
21.
JY is deel van ʼn skool en koshuis wat vir jou omgee – moenie huiwer om probleme of
ongerymdhede met jou Prefekte, Voog-personeel, Personeel, Matrone of Huisvader te
bespreek nie.
ONTHOU: Jy is altyd ʼn Grey-seun en jou optrede moet ten alle tye jou
skool waardig wees. Grey is trots op jou!

14. Always greet your peers, scholars or people who are your seniors and stand up when adults

grounds.
15. When someone other than hostel people is outside the hostel, the person on “vehicle duty”
(14:00 – 17:00) must immediately enquire if he can be of assistance.
16. You are at all times responsible for your cell phone. Always keep your cell phone in a safe
place. Always lock your cell phone in a cupboard if you do not carry it with you. Do not leave

19. Protect yourself by paying attention to the "digital footprints" that you leave, by not making
incriminating remarks on FB, etc. Not everything can be edited once posted on FB or Twitter.
Also protect and guard your privacy and personal life. Be careful not to "bully" others with your
comments. If you feel vulnerable or “bullied” by someone through the social media, or maybe
have posted things that you regret, our doors are always open for you to discuss any matter in
this regard. It is never necessary to feel inferior or hurt by the reactions of other people on
social networks. Please come and talk to us when you have a problem.
20. Always think of other people and respect people and their belongings with your words and your
actions. Swearing only shows a lack of vocabulary and the inability to express yourself.
Please guard your mouth against it – swearing does not fit a Grey Gentleman’s behaviour.
21. YOU are part of a school and hostel that cares about you – never hesitate to discuss problems
or discrepancies with your Prefects, Guardian Staff, Personnel, Matron or Housemaster.
REMEMBER: You are always a Grey boy and your actions must always be
worthy of your school. Grey is proud of you!
