Mobile phones are an effective and quick means of communication. Where unforeseen events occur, mobile phones provide students and their families with a ready means of communication. There is a need, however, to set clear guidelines to avoid unnecessary interference with teaching and learning.
In normal circumstances, parents or caregivers needing to leave messages for their children should do so by telephoning the College. Staff will endeavour to ensure that messages are passed on during class breaks. Office staff are also available to assist students who need to contact family/other persons in an emergency.
Students should not contact their parents if they are ill – please follow school procedure and inform staff who will make contact with parents on their behalf.
