"To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; to be credible we must be truthful."
Edward R. Murrow (American Journalist, 1908-1965)
The Mission of the Honor Council: To educate the Woodstock community on issues of honor, and to hold us all accountable to high standards.
In this era where competition is rapidly rising and morals and principles going down the hill at an alarmingly fast rate, Woodstock Honor Council is a student initiated response to the 'unethical' ways. The Honor Council was established in the fall of 2009, comprising of nine students, from 11th and 12th grade, along with two staff advisors. The Honor Council looks to actively educate the Woodstock community on issues of honor and integrity. The Council is also empowered with carrying out hearings and recommending consequences to the administration, if and when, breach of academic integrity occurs. The school is committed to creating an environment where original ideas are truly valued, an environment where honest students are not at a disadvantage. At a time where competition for college placements, finding jobs and a need to 'rise above the rest' are fiercer than ever, it is important to educate the leaders of the future to compete fairly within the realms of moral and ethical values stated in the Woodstock Mission and Creed. The Woodstock community is committed to this cause and we hope that our school may serve as a role model for institutions around the world in matters of honor, integrity and principles.
