Most children across the country have returned to school this week, but one school in Co Wicklow has enacted a change over the summer as smartphones are now banned from their grounds.
In a tweet St Cronan’s in Bray, have confirmed that all smartphones are now banned following a vote from parents over the summer.
It is understood that over 91% parents backed the ban that will see smartphones being banned from the school’s grounds.
However the school has moved to clarify any concerns as they have confirmed that basic phones which are used for calls and texts are allowed in the school.
Although all basic phones must be switched off during class.
We reopen tomorrow, 29th Aug at 8.40am. Please also note that smartphones are no longer permitted in St. Cronan’s following a survey in June where 91.2% of parents voted for a ban on smartphones. Basic mobile phones are allowed but must be switched off at all times in school.
