‘Set smart rules’


Share post:

AN ANGLICAN CLERIC says that while he is not against the use of smartphones by children in schools, the students must act responsibly with the devices.

Canon Peter Haynes, rector of St Peter’s Parish Church, speaking to the DAILY NATION after his sermon to mark the 168th anniversary of the Public Library Service yesterday, said the cellphones should be used to bring value rather than harm to others.

He called on his congregation to teach their children how to use the gadgets constructively.

Haynes’ comments followed a report in yesterday’s SUNDAY SUN that the Ministry of Education was preparing a code to govern smartphone usage in schools. (RA)
