Thank you for your attendance at the Parent Lounge Session to discuss the Revised Mobile Phone Policy for Hastings Secondary College Port Macquarie Campus.  

The internet is here to stay, along with social media. We must continually teach our young people about safe, timely and responsible use.

The revised mobile phone policy will focus on three key words of safe, timely and responsible.
