The Albena Lake-Hodge Comprehensive School expresses gratitude to all parents particularly those who hold the rules of the school and seek to instill respect for the institution in their children and wider community. We encourage all those who are not yet on board to do likewise and express our thanks in advance.

The following Discipline and Dress Code is published here to provide guidelines for all parents, guardians and students. We look forward to the full cooperation of all as we strive together to develop the human resource potential of our nation.

THE UNIFORM

The uniform is a mark of the school and should be worn with pride. How students wear the uniform displays their attitude towards the school. Students failing to wear the school’s uniform correctly will NOT be allowed to enter the school premises. They will be sent home to.

The management of the Albena Lake-Hodge Comprehensive School is appealing to ALL parents/guardians of students attending the ALHCS to ensure that their children come to school appropriately dressed in the correct uniform on a daily basis.
