Mobile Phone Policy (Yondr)


The implementation of the YONDR Program at Kotara High School is designed to support students to use mobile phones, and adjacent technology in a responsible and ethical manner. It provides a ‘phone-free’ space which encourages students to develop the skills to interact positively with their peers and teachers, and to fully immerse themselves in the learning process. 


This document outlines the policies and procedures which underpin the management of the YONDR Program, providing a consistent framework for the use of mobile phones in the school environment, relating to both students and staff, through the use of the YONDR phone pouch system.

The YONDR pouch system will be in place throughout the school day from 8.00am to 3.10pm and covers access to mobile phones and adjacent technology (e.g. earphones and smart watches) on school grounds, at school-related activities and outside of school where there is a clear and close connection between the school and the conduct of students. This procedure identifies that mobile phones are not considered an appropriate device under the Department’s BYOD policy.
