This event contains risks, including certain risks being an outdoors activity. This event is run by school staff who will manage risk and hazards according to the school’s safety management plan. This includes careful planning to mitigate as many risks as practical and to have safety equipment and first aid kit as appropriate to the event. Risks include possible trips or falls along steep ground and exposure to bad weather. This will be mitigated by careful route selection by staff with previous experience on this journey, and ensuring correct clothing is always worn. While risks can be maintained to acceptable levels they cannot be totally eliminated. Some risk is retained for its learning and experiential value. If you wish to come in to school to see our safety
management systems or have any questions, feel free to contact Sue Mattingly if you have any questions or concerns.

It is important for safety reasons that students follow instructions given to them by all staff and follow all appropriate school rules. Behaviour by students that is deemed dangerous and puts themselves and/or others at undue risk will result in parents being contacting and if necessary, parents would need to come and get their child at the parents’ expense.

Please feel free to contact me at school with any queries 027 2286 111.
