Boarders may have cell phones.  Hostel management, however, will not take any responsibility for such phones.  Cell phones must be switched off (not just on silent) during meals, study and sleeping time (21:40 – 06:15).  Cell phones may also not be taken to school, or if necessary, must be handed in at the office for the duration of the official school day.  If the boarder does not abide by these rules, the cell phone will be confiscated for 10 school days.  However, it may be bought back earlier at R5 for every day taken before the 10 day expires.
