School reviewing policy after student's photo shared

8:56 pm on 12 April 2012

Golden Bay High School is reviewing its internet and cellphone safety policies after three students were stood down for sharing images of a Year 9 classmate.

The girl went to school management after realising a picture of her had been taken off a social networking site and sent to other pupils.

The students were stood down for a few days following the incident, which happened outside school hours about a month ago.

The chair of the school's board of trustees, Bruce Packard, says students and parents will be better educated about technology and social media as a result of the incident.
