This measure is taken to ensure that there are no distractions to teaching and learning.This ban extends to classrooms and corridors. Phones must be left in lockers. If students breach this rule, they will have to surrender their phones daily, to the deputy principal. An exception may be granted if a teacher explicitly requests students to bring phones to a particular class for an educational purpose. The exemption must be sought on a class by class basis. THis ban will be extended to Second Years later in the year and to the whole school next year.
