The Chinese Daily reported that parents of a secondary 2 student of ACS (Barker Road), have sued the school for confiscating his handphone. The boy was using his iPhone 7 in class on March 20 when it was confiscated by the teacher. According to the school’s rules, anybody caught using handphones in class will have their devices confiscated for 3 months. The boy himself indicated that he was aware of the rule.

The teacher-in-charge confiscated his phone but returned him his SIM card. He was even issued an official form which told his family of the confiscation.

However, his parents were relentless as they sent letters demanding the school to return their son’s phone immediately. They threatened to take this to the court if nothing is done. When the school ignored the parents, they filed for an injunction seeking the court to compel the school to return the phone.
