RDA Far North is running a “Committee Basics Training” in Quorn on Wednesday, the 22nd of February. It would be great training for anyone in the school community on a committee, a club or organisation, or a governing council.
Quorn Area School is committed to ensuring a safe and effective learning environment for all learners. Recently our teachers have noticed a significant increase in mobile phone use and dependency across the secondary school, and they are concerned about the potential impact on learning. In response to this, we will be updating our mobile phone policy and introducing dedicated phone storage options in line with many schools across the state.
The first stage of this shift in policy will involve teachers collecting mobile phones at the beginning of each lesson from Monday, 29 August. Teachers will then store the phones in a locked room for the entirety of the lesson. Upon completion of the lesson, the teacher will return the phone to the learner.
We thank you for your continued support in ensuring a safe and healthy learning environment for all stakeholders.
If you need to reach your child during the day, you can contact the school on 86486101.
