Head: Cellphones not a problem
The ISLAND’s lone boys secondary school is reporting that it does not have a problem with cellphones. Principal of St Leonard’s Boys’, Stephen King, admitted that from time to time children would sneak cellphones on to the premises.
However, when that happened, the potential recording devices were usually confiscated and parents contacted, he added.
King explained that the school carried out regular general searches to ensure that the presence of the forbidden phones did not become a major problem. The school conducted one of its routine searches last week Monday, he said.
“We have regular general searches just to make sure that the students comply with the instructions . . . , They are children, they would try something,” King said.
