Excursions may be classified as any activity which is a variation of normal school routine. They may involve attendance or participation in a performance, sporting event, academic or social activity.
Excursions are legitimate components of educational programs when planned in line with the stated aims of the whole school. The potential outcomes of excursions are compared with the proven educational outcomes of other teaching strategies available in order to ensure that they are legitimate and necessary. Excursions can be unparalleled learning experiences.
School uniform must be worn unless specified by the organising teacher.
Information regarding excursions and permission notes will be sent home to parents and will include all details and a clear indication of the refund policy, due dates for payment, insurance and medical information.
The information notes are distributed along with Medical, Student Agreement Act and Consent forms to parents with a return by date and also the last date that money is due to finalise details.
