He added that they would be introduced to various structures, systems, rules and regulations in the College so that they get to know the dos and don'ts of the College in full. He emphasized that all students must be disciplined in appearance as they would be addressed the way they dress. He warned that it was illegal to operate a secret society or belong to a banned society and any contravention of the regulation would result in expulsion and possible criminal prosecution. The Rector called on the parents to counsel their children to be of good behaviour throughout their stay in the College.
