The following guide is a companion to the Guidelines for the surrender and retention of property and searches.

The scenarios are based on actual incidents that have taken place in New Zealand schools and kura.

In this section:

  1. Intimate photos taken with a smart phone
  2. Video recording of an alleged assault
  3. Pornography on a school laptop
  4. Using instant messaging to organise a fight
  5. Recording an incident in the classroom
