Mobile Phone Policy

A reminder that the Department of Education has in place a mobile phone ban that requires students who bring mobiles phones to school to have them switched off and securely put away during school hours. All students bringing a mobile phone or electronic device to school must hand it in to the office as soon as they arrive at school. All devices will be kept securely in the office for the duration of the day. Students can collect their device from the school office after the 3:20pm bell. Students that travel on buses will collect their device from the bus supervisor as they get on their bus.


The department is requiring all schools to ensure this ban is in place and enforced throughout the 2024 school year.


The ban applies equally to all government schools right across the state.

This helps ensure that school is a learning environment free from unnecessary distractions and disruptions.


By ensuring mobile phones are kept away at recess and lunch times, students can interact with each other face-to-face, without the distractions and social pressures that mobile phones can cause.


I ask for the support of all our families, staff and students in continuing to support the implementation of this policy in our school.
