BANNED FROM SCHOOL: Mobile phones will be banned at all state schools in Victoria, both secondary and primary, from next year.

MOBILE phones will be banned from all state schools, including those in Mansfield, following an announcement from the Minister for Education, James Merlino.

Under the new legislation, students will be required to switch off their phones and store them securely in lockers from the start of the school day until the final bell.

The only exceptions to the ban will be where students use phones to monitor health conditions, or where teachers instruct students to bring their phone for a particular classroom activity; at all other times, phones must be in lockers.
