WhatsApp Policy:

Whatsapp is used as a means of communication regarding homework and updates. To make this efficient, we ask students to ensure the following:

  1. Always keep to the group's purpose, no sharing of irrelevant messages about other topics.

  2. The group is not a political platform. Keep it relevant and check your sources before you share.

  3. For extended conversations, students should use private messages.

  4. Members of the group will be in different time zones. Therefore, we ask students to be courteous of the time they have conversations in the group unless it is an emergency.

  5. We ask students never to use a group to criticize someone else or air grievances. Instead, it should be addressed one-on-one with the relevant person or administrator if one has an issue.

  6. If a student private-messages an administrator for a query, we ask them to wait for 48 hours before sending a reminder.

  7. Do not call Deen Arts Foundation staff and administration without first seeking permission.

  8. Do not share Deen Arts Foundation staff and administration contact information without seeking permission.
