Yondr is launched
On Friday the 2nd of September DCW launched the Yondr as part of our new mobile phone initiative. Yondr is a pouch for the students mobile phone that locks when it closes. As students enter the school the phone is placed in the pouch and locked. The pouch can be unlocked as students leave the building. Having a phone free school is essential for the students personal and academic life. Yondr will ensure that the school is a haven where students can engage with what they are doing and who they are doing it with without the distraction of their mobile device.
