This event contains risks, including trips, and falls in the bush and getting separated from the group and exposure to the weather. This event is managed by school staff who will manage risk and hazards according to the school’s safety management plan. This includes careful discussion with the students around how to behave while in the bush, expectations of clothing and what to do if student gets separated. 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 into school to see our safety management systems or have any questions, feel free to contact Sarah Templer, 03 2116030 ext 848 or email@example.com.
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 follow up action when back at school.
