Art Department – request to borrow photography equipment

The Art Department has a range of cameras and photography equipment that are available for Senior Visual Art students to borrow if needed. 

We are privileged to have this equipment and it is essential to their learning.  To ensure the benefit of this equipment for all students, we require you to complete the following request form and agree to the Student Borrowing Conditions for your child.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs Sarah Templer – HOD Art Department,

  • Student Borrowing Conditions

    • I will fill out the booking book accurately EVERY TIME I book equipment with everything I borrow.
    • I will return the equipment on the specified date at the specified time.

    Note: if you are not going to be at school you still need to arrange for the equipment to be returned.

    • I will ensure ALL equipment, including batteries, charger, and cords are returned with the camera.
    • I will not leave the camera or equipment unattended, especially in a car.
    • I will not leave the equipment with or lend to someone else.  I have full responsibility.
    • I will not expose the camera to dusty, sandy or wet conditions.
    • I will not use the camera in an underwater camera case.
    • I will ensure the batteries are charged if needed before the camera is returned (DSLR).

    The equipment you are borrowing is expensive.  You MUST ensure it is SAFE and SECURE at ALL TIMES.

  • You will be emailed a copy of this form once submitted.
  • By signing this form you agree that your child has read and understands the Student Borrowing Conditions for borrowing photography equipment from the school. Should any of these conditions not be followed, a reminder will be issued and the privilege of borrowing Art Department Equipment be removed.
