Mobile phones will be officially banned in schools starting next term, but some schools have already implemented the policy. Under the new rules, students will not be allowed to use a phone at school, including during lunch-time and breaks. A similiar ban has been in place in some Australian states since last year. Denise Lofts is the Principal at Ulladulla High School in New South Wales. She told Nathan Rarere they've seen the effects in test results and at lunch-breaks.
