Cell phone use is restricted during interval and lunchtime. Students can use their phones for the first five minutes of lunchtime to check messages as needed. The phones are then to be put away. If a student is using their phones after this time, they will be removed and kept at the main office for safekeeping until the end of the day.
Parents are encouraged not to contact their child during the day unless it is an emergency. You will still be able to contact your daughters in an emergency by calling the student office or the main office.
Year 7 and 8 students will have phones locked away during the day.
This policy is designed to:
Strengthen face-to-face communication, collaboration skills and active participation in learning
Support self-management and remove distractions
Support wellbeing, provide time, and space away from social media.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mrs Megan Cassidy, Deputy Principal email@example.com
