Kadina Memorial School acknowledges that mobile phones and other personal electronic devices, such as smart watches, serve a purpose in both personal and professional contexts, and have a place in our community. It is our view that mobile phones must be handled in a mature and responsible fashion and in such a way that does not hinder the education process or personal wellbeing.

The responsible use of a mobile phone or like device with unconditional access to the internet extends beyond the school environment and is applicable at all times within the general community. At the same time, these devices can present a serious risk to student safety, wellbeing and learning. These risks are clearly defined under the Department for Education’s Legislative Framework that includes Child Protection Curriculum, WHS, and Duty of Care responsibilities of education staff outlined in the Education Act.
