School phone ban proving to be a shock for some

From Morning Report, 7:38 am on 8 February 2024

Some school students are finding the government's ban on mobile phones a bit of a shock.

Schools have been open for just a few days, but many have already revised their rules to meet the new regulation which comes into force at the start of term two.

From that date schools must ensure students do not use or access a phone, including during lunch time and breaks, though there are exemptions.

Education correspondent John Gerritsen has been asking students and teachers how it is going.
