The College recently reviewed it's mobile devices policy. As a result of this review (which included feedback from students, staff and parents), we are implementing some changes to enhance student learning in the classroom and improve social interactions across the College.
The details of these will be fully explained to students in the first week of term next year.
The school will implement the use of YONDR pouches, which are kept by the student but will effectively secure phones from use during the school day. Students will then be able to unlock these pouches at 2.15 pm.
Feedback from school communities that have implemented this approach has been highly positive in its effect on increasing student engagement.
We look forward to working with you as a school community to implement this positive change.
