During a school trip, students are expected to uphold standards of behaviour that would be expected within school. Students will be expected to show respect for teachers and peers by following instructions diligently and maintaining a positive attitude. Respecting the environment and property of others is crucial, as is prioritising safety by staying with designated groups and adhering to safety guidelines. Active engagement in the trip's educational components, such as listening to instructors, asking questions, and participating in activities, enhances the learning experience.

By embracing these expectations, students not only create lasting memories but also cultivate responsibility and respect for others and their surroundings. Any students who fail to adhere to these expectations will be expected to be collected by parents from this trip.
