To explain Western English Language School’s policy in relation to personal property and to ensure that special or valuable items of personal property are not brought to school.


This policy applies to all school activities, including camps and excursions, at all campuses, sites and outposts of Western English Language School.


Western English Language School (WELS) understands that staff and/or students may sometimes like to bring items of personal property to school.

The Department of Education and Training does not have insurance for personal property of staff, students and visitors. Western English Language School does not take responsibility for items of personal property that are lost, stolen or damaged at school or during school activities. Damage to personal property brought to school is the responsibility of the owner of that property.

Western English Language School encourages staff and students not to bring items of value to any of the WELS campuses, or to obtain appropriate insurance for such items.

If students bring items of value to school, such as mobiles, they will be stored securely in the Audio Visual room until the end of the School day.
