The fact it will finally be easier for me to talk to the other students when I go back to school coz the Victorian government banned the phones from schools.

It won't work. It's being implemented in WA too, but there are so many issues at the school I went to, where not having phones could/will be detrimental to some students work.

As an example from when I was a student - multiple times I needed to do some further studying about a subject, and the library yielded no results. So having the ability to use your phone discreetly while working made things a lot easier than having to go to your teacher, ask for a note to go to a computer, and having to find a spare computer (if it wasn't taken up by other students).

I see why they've put the rule in. But there are going to be cases where no phones will make student life just that little bit more horrible. Having a phone around near a fight will 9/10 times result in a video being recorded, and that video can be used as evidence to suspend student/s for fighting (not that my school did anything when it came to bullying...).

Cheers! :wink:

At my school, it's a lot more different, we will use laptops for researching and can access my local newspaper.

EDIT: The school I'm going to will have a lot of security cameras so there won't really be a reason to have a phone to record a fight as evidence when reporting it because it would pretty much be caught camera, the rules at that school will be quite strict so they can basically allow the students themselves to run the school instead of the teachers.

You can still bring them to school, but you just can't use it as soon as you get there. It has to be kept away in your bag from the start of school to the end.

In my opinion I think it's a good idea that the Government has launched this.

Yes, especially, since there are so many people my age at my who just only seem to just focus on likes, and also from the cyberbullying across social media involving kids. Why is a smartphone even called a 'smartphone' when it just makes people dumb, that's why the government wants phones to be banned from schools.

My (now previous) school banned snapchat a few months back because it had A million hits in the system and I've also heard of another school that banned TikTok because students were sending pictures of genitals to each other :shock:

Here are more things that make me happy today:

Everyone standing up to us as the country burns
A possible visit to Melbourne
The fact that more Greta buses (Electric and hybrids) were delivered to bus operaters and Scania built its first hybrid vehicle....

Being able to do Go-Karting 8) 8) 8) a few weeks ago on a decent track during the summer holidays. Honestly it's a lot of fun being able to move around in Go karts (funny thing: the ones I went on are capable of reaching 60km/h).
