A right is something an individual is entitled to. At Guru Gyansthali Public School every individual has rights and is thereby entitled to:

A responsibility is something for which one is responsible – legally or morally obliged to take care of something or to carry out a duty. At Guru Gyanasthali Public school everybody has responsibilities. The responsibilities of students, staff and parents as a part of school community are to respect the rights of others.


A rule is a statement of what can, must or should be done in a certain set of circumstances. To protect the rights and to encourage responsibility, there are rules for everyone. School is expected that everyone follows the rules as stated in the school policy.
