Internal regulations (ROI)

The Grand-Ducal regulation of 7 May 2009 sets the internal regulations common to all schools. However, the school committee, together with the parents’ representatives, may also draw up additional internal regulations, the purpose of which is to lay down specific rules concerning the conduct and supervision of school and extra-curricular activities.

These internal regulations (ROI) are essential to ensure a good school climate, a spirit of camaraderie, solidarity and mutual respect for the entire school community: pupils, school staff and parents.
