FACTION CROSS COUNTRY
It was wonderful to see all of the students having a go at the Cross Country last Friday and braving the conditions to finish their race.
We have had a confirmed case of Influenza A within the school giving us a further reminder to be cautious when it comes to sending sick children to school. As I have said previously, it is better to have an extra day and make sure that children are not contagious before sending them back if they have been sick.
SMART WATCHES AND MOBILE PHONES
Whilst the mobile phone policy is very clear in the restriction of usage of phones by students, it has been brought to my attention that some students are also wearing smart watches, that can connect to a phone that is in a bag, giving the mobile phone access whilst in class. More alarmingly, it appears that some parents have even been texting their children whilst in class to arrange pick-up details or provide other messages.
