We hope these initial meetings have given you a clear picture of your child’s start to the school year as well as some of the initial learning goals that will shape the direction of your child’s learning in 2015. If you were unable to attend these scheduled interviews, please feel welcome to make contact with your child’s teacher to organise an alternative time. MOBILE PHONE POLICY FOR STUDENTS Several parents have inquired recently into the school’s policy in regards to the use of mobile phones by students. We understand that many students make contact with parents at the end of the school day on their mobile phones and to this end we do allow students to bring their phones to school. The only restriction we have to the use of the phones is that they are placed at the office during the school day and can only be used after 3:30pm. Phones will be removed from any student who chooses to access these during the school day, with these being returned to the student at the end of the day. Parents will be contacted if any students continue to breach this practice. Please note that the school cannot accept any responsibility for the loss or damage to any mobile phone as per the Department of Education’s guidelines on this matter.
