Portable Digital Device Policy

 

Policy Statement

 

The College accepts that the use of ipods/mp3 (or similar) students is an intergral aspect of everyday life. Therefore the College acknowledges students bring these to school. However, the College will not take any responsibility for loss or damage of them. The College Code of Conduct requires that we all respect the personal property and rights of others. Therefore ipods/mp3’s will be treated in the same manner as all other personal items that students bring to school. The College recognises and supports the use of ipods/mp3’s as an educational tool in the teaching and learning process.

 

*Due to the value of these devices, students are discouraged from bringing them and other valuable, personal items to school.
