Wah, this sounds a little over dramatic if we’re being honest!

In a report by the Straits Times, a boy studying in a Singapore secondary school had his phone confiscated earlier in March. 

The student reportedly met with the school principal on the 21st of March and confessed to having used his iPhone 7 during school hours earlier that month.

He then had his phone confiscated and his SIM card returned to him along with a note stating that he would be able to collect it after 3 months.

Later that evening, the student’s father found out about what happened and decided to write a letter to the principal, saying that the phone was his son’s and he wanted it back.



He also added that “a three-month confiscation is disproportionate to the offence” and his son has promised not to break the rule again.

However, the principal did not reply to the letter, which made the father decide to take the school to court.

The father wanted to sue the school for denying a person’s rights to his property and has asked the court to tell the school to return his son’s phone.

However, the judge present during this case stated that the principal was following the rules of the school and added that returning the phone early would defeat the purpose of the school’s rules against phone use. 

In the end, the father’s request for the school to return the phone early was denied by the judge.

His son shouldn’t be using his phone during class in the first place right?
