Phones Away for the Day

Students are not permitted to use mobile phones at school.  

Should a student need to bring a mobile phone to School for use after school hours, the phone must be switched off and handed to the classroom teacher for safekeeping during the day. If a student is found with their phone during school hours, it will be confisacated, and can only be retrieved by a parent.

You can view a copy of the rules on the Ministry of Education website here: Phones Away for the day Rules.

These rules are designed to ensure that the learning of all students is maximised, while minimising any potential for distraction and cyber-bullying. If a parent or caregiver needs to contact their child urgently during the day, they should call the school office. 

In order for this phone rule to be effective and to not disrupt our learning programmes we ask parents/ caregivers to speak to their child about these rules and reinforce the expectations of the school.
