Other Information
Phone Policy on Activities
We hope the students thoroughly enjoy the activities provided, and we wish that they create long-lasting memories for themselves, and for their practical portfolios for the end of the year. In this spirit, we would encourage our students to exercise discretion and sensible use of mobile phones while engaging in tours and in other activities. The taking of selfies to demonstrate presence at an event is great; keeping the face glued to the screen instead of taking in the moment is discouraged. Carpe Diem, seize the day, don’t let life pass you by through a screen.
