These items may be used at interval and lunch. They can only be used in class where the teacher has given a clear instruction for them to be used as an educational tool; students seen (or heard) with these devices in class, where permission has not been granted by the teacher, will have the item impounded until parents are able to collect them from the main office.
Students who use their cellphones for anti-social reasons (e.g. text bullying, spreading false rumours) face having their phones impounded for a longer period of time and/or other disciplinary outcomes.
Students are permitted to wear one small ring, a single small earring (up to 1cm diameter) or stud in each ear, and a necklace or taonga. Facial piercings are permitted provided they are pinhead-sized, flush to the skin and discreet.
