This event contains risks, including walking around Evandale Gardens. This event is managed by school staff who will manage risk and hazards according to the school’s safety management plan. This includes wearing high vis vests at all times while we are there, students are not to be on their phones while we are on site and need to be aware of the machinery and vehicles within the complex. 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 Kelly Gentle on 03 211 6030 ext 887.
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 the parents being contacted and asked to be collected and removed from the field trip. It would also mean they are at risk of not being chosen to attend other field trips in the future.
