If you cannot respect the Code, Law or Promise then action will be taken. You will be given a verbal warning followed by a ‘yellow’ warning. If you get two ‘yellow’ warnings then you will get a ‘red card’. This will be taken home for discussion.

If your attitudes and behaviours continue to be poor then you may be suspended or have your PL or APL taken from you.
