Mobile Phone Policy

Mobile Phone and other Electronic Devices Policy

1.     It is strongly recommended that students do not bring mobile phones or other electronic devices to school.

2.     If a student wishes to bring a mobile phone (ie. for contact with parents whilst travelling to and from school), then the phone must be switched off from the time the student enters onto school grounds until the student leaves the school grounds at the conclusion of the school day. During this time, it is recommended that the phone be kept in a discrete place within the student’s school bag and that it should not be removed during the entire school day. This applies to all school activities whether at camp, on excursion, attending sport, carnivals or other such events.

3.     If a student is found with a mobile phone, or other electronic devices, or the like, in their hand or on display at ANY time during the day, then:

a.    The teacher will give a note to the student to take the item to the Deputy Principal or Principal

b.    Receipt of the item will be recorded by the Deputy Principal and a return to class note provided to the student

c.     The student will be required to collect the item at the end of the school day.

If this should occur a second time, the student shall receive a Head Teacher lunch detention. A Third infringement will lead to an after school detention supervised by the Deputy Principal. Repeated failure to observe this school requirement will lead to school suspension for persistent failure to observe school rules.

4.     If a student requires the use of a phone to contact a parent during the school day, he/she should approach one of the school Deputies. If deemed appropriate, the student will be allowed to use a school phone.

5.     The usual communication between teachers and parents regarding illness, property, messages, emergencies or school issues remains via the front office on 4625 7755.

6.     The school can accept no responsibility for the security or care of mobile phones, or other electronic devices and the like. These items are brought to school at the owner’s risk.
