St Jago Online herein referred to as JOL refers to the online presence of the distinct parties which make up the St Jago High School Family. These distinct parties include but are not limited to the High School, Parents Teachers Association, the Past Students Associations and the Alumni Associations.

Some of these parties have additional policies specific to their operations. These policies deal with central issues mainly covering website content, correspondences and email.

The St Jago Online Website Overview Committee (also referred to as Web team and Website Overview Committee) reffers to those individuals from the distinct parties who determine the appropriateness, relevance and organization of content, and those who prepare, publish and modify the content. The de facto head of this committee is therefore the webmaster. All communication officers from the distinct parties are ex parte members of this committee. The committee also has several other persons appointed to facilitate the objective of the JOL project. In keeping with the integration and development objectives the committee also has a student based sub committee.

Your privacy is very important to us at JOL.
