Should kids have mobile phones at school?
Here's another cartoon pinched from the Fiji Times. The Education Department has banned them in Fiji schools. Okay, but who collects them every morning and gives them back in the afternoon? There are two letters in today's paper discussion the topic of Fiji kids and their mobile phones. Of course this doesn't apply to children up in Navosa in the hills, but mainly to Suva children and the anxiety of parents wanting to know their whereabouts and keep in touch. Of course mobiles being used in classtime is inappropriate but hey guys, it's the year 2008, and technical aids such as vodophones are common. So what do you think?
I wonder if mobile phones are banned in Methodist churches in Fiji? A few fun ring tones would pep up a sermon eh? Jonny Baker told us of a gimmick they used in England - people rang in 'their sins' and a phone answered them 'Your sins are forgiven!' Another time they arranged for all the phones to go off at the same time in the middle of a worship service. It was like a pentecost experience!
