Digital Citizenship

Digital Devices and Online Services Procedures

Whilst Banora Point High School recognises that mobile devices are everyday communication tools used in wider society, they have the potential to interrupt learning if used inappropriately within a school environment.

Recently the NSW Department of Education undertook a comprehensive study into the impact of the overuse of mobile/electronic devices amongst students. The review concluded that there are profound adverse impacts on student’s academic, social and emotional wellbeing when such devices are used for non-educational purposes during school hours. As a result of this current research, and in line with our commitment to provide safe and productive learning spaces for all students, Banora Point High School has updated our procedures regarding digital device use at school.

The new procedure is in draft form and we would appreciate your feedback before finalising the procedure. Please click here to view our 2021 Banora Point High School Digital Devices and Online Services Procedure (PDF 269 KB)
