Personal Technology Policy

Following consultation with staff, students and the school association, Huonville High School is considering implementing a policy that will ensure personal devices such as mobile phones are not seen or heard in any classes on the 7 to 10 campus. The ban will not apply at break times, and is designed to minimise distractions and assist the development of a positive learning environment. Our grade 7 program already has a similar policy, which has been successful in allowing students to better focus on their learning.


The Department of Education Tasmania has announced a ban on mobile phones during the school day beginning in Term 2, 2020.
In preparation for this, Huonville High School has the following draft policy which will be implemented for Term 1, 2020 on the 7 to 10 campus.
There will be a future update for the 11 and 12 campus.
We welcome any comments on this, and we thank you for your support as we work together to create the best possible educational outcomes for our students.
