The College Vision, “Leaders and Learners driven by Values and Imagination”, extends beyond academic achievement. It also highlights the importance of good character. The College Discipline & Guidance Unit aims to cultivate in every SRJCian a sense of self- responsibility, the practice of good habits and the development of good character and values.

In all aspects of College life, good character should be modelled and honoured. The Code of Conduct, Rules and Regulations and Conduct Grading System guide students to "Know the Good, Love the Good, and Do the Good". The College Values of Active Participation, Selflessness, Perseverance, Integrity, Respect and Enterprise drive SRJCians' thoughts, actions and deeds.

  • Self-disciplined students, observing regular attendance and punctuality at all lessons, activities and functions;
  • Active learners in the pursuit of knowledge and skills;
  • Selfless and Respectful individuals with consideration for fellow students and staff;
  • Persevering individuals who strive to overcome challenges and meet expectations in all areas; and
