La Martiniere for Girls lays special emphasis on the holistic development of the student,
especially on the moral, ethical and social development of each child entrusted to us. Every
student is, therefore, expected to behave in a manner befitting the true Martinian values and
spirit, while on the premises and outside school, especially when they are in school uniform.
Disrespecting school regulations, disobeying and disrespecting teachers and ancillary staff,
and indiscipline of any form will be dealt with, according to the seriousness and gravity of
