First Years To Go Without Their Mobiles For Two Weeks

Posted by


First years from Presentation and CBS The Green who are taking part in the ‘Snap It Shut’ initiative.

IT’S a big sacrifice.

First year students in Presentation and CBS The Green have volunteered for a joint initiative between the two schools to “Snap It Shut”.

It saw over 120 students put their mobile devices into sealed and stapled brown envelopes on Tuesday and agree not to use them for two weeks.

On March 29 the envelopes will be opened. It is hoped that the students will see a difference in their lifestyle¬† and will be more aware of the “real” world as opposed the the “virtual” one.

Participation was completely voluntary and all participants enjoyed the process, even though some found the initial parting a little painful.
