Cell Phone Regulations
For safety reasons, your cell phone should always be switched off or on non-transmitting (flight) mode when you are on-campus. Some frequencies have been known to interfere with beauty therapy equipment, inducing shocks and, in rare cases, electrocution. We don’t want to have that happen to anyone, and we’re sure you don’t either. So your phone should not be on sleeping or silent mode but off or flight mode.
We bear no responsibility if your cell phone is on and our equipment malfunctions, injuring, disabling, et cetera you, a classmate, client, staff member or member of the general public.
If too many students disobey this rule, we will ban cell phones on campus.
Best rule: turn your cell phone to flight mode as you step into the building.
Non-Compliance with Cell Phone Regulations
If you don’t comply with this policy, we have the right to:
- Take disciplinary actions against you; and / or
- Make sure your cell phone is turned off, making you come out of class (class will continue on without you) and making you turn it off; and / or
- Confiscate your cell phone while you are on campus; and /or
- Ban you from bringing your cell phone to school; and / or
- Taking other actions we deem fit.
It’s easiest to comply. This saves you, your classmates and us time and resources that we can devote to your learning.
Give the school’s number to everyone who may need to contact you for emergencies.
Make sure they know to tell us the call is an emergency and we will try to get you out of class to answer it ASAP.
Alternatively, you can say on our voice mail message: “If this is an emergency, and you are contacting me whilst I am at school between X and X, please call the school directly on (03) 366-5037.”
Please make sure calls are limited to emergencies only.
