Students will access the Internet to assist their learning. This access is done under supervision. In order to do so, parents and students are asked to sign an Internet Agreement form. This form is included with the enrolment package. The Department of Education, Training and Employment has blocks and filters in place to reduce the likelihood of children accessing inappropriate sites.
The use of mobile phones, portable CD and MP3 players, Personal Digital Assistants and similar electronic devices in school is disruptive to the learning environment of all students. Such devices are not permitted at Mount Archer School, either during lessons; break times or during excursions, camps and extra curricular activities. Staff usually carry mobile telephones during such activities to cater for any emergencies that may arise. Parents wishing students to use these devices in special and exceptional circumstances must negotiate arrangements through the Principal. Parents are reminded that no liability will be accepted by the school in the event of the loss, theft, or damage to any such devices.
