Code of Conduct

Suncrest’s Code of Conduct has been established to support a safe, caring and healthy learning environment.  The purpose of the Code is to inform all members of the school community of our shared  responsibilities while in attendance at school, while traveling to and from school, and while attending any school function at any location. Suncrest’s Code is in line with the Burnaby School District’s Code (https://burnabyschools.ca/code-of-conduct).
