Consent Form

Consent Form


I {{[Parent/Legal Guardian Name]}} give permission for my daughter {{[Student First Name]}} {{[Student Last name]}} to participate in the Outdoor Education off-campus programs.

In signing this document for my daughter’s participation in the Outdoor Education program, I am aware that certain elements of the course could be physically and emotionally demanding.  Furthermore, I understand that certain inherent risks and dangers exist in the activities in which my daughter will be participating.  I acknowledge that although the School, its staff and instructors employed by the School, will make every reasonable effort to teach my daughter proper outdoor techniques and minimise exposure to known risks, all hazards and dangers associated with these activities cannot be foreseen or may be beyond the control of the School, its staff and the instructors employed by the School.  I acknowledge that I have been provided with a description of the camp and/or activities.

To the extent permitted by law, and in consideration of the School permitting the participation of the Student in the Activity, and on behalf of the Student and her parents and guardians:
 a.  we release the School and its staff from all claims, demands and proceedings by the Student or by us, arising out of participation by the Student in the activity now or at some time in the future; and
 b.  we hereby indemnify the School and its staff against all liability for  injury, loss or damage arising out of or connected with participation by the Student in the activity now or at some time in the future,
except to the extent of gross negligence, or a wilful act or omission, by the School or its staff.

I also understand that it is a condition of participation to accurately complete the Student Details Form if my daughters’ medical details differ from what I have supplied previously for the School’s database.

I agree, in the case of my daughter suffering an injury or illness, to authorise the School, represented by the Camp Leader, to administer over the counter medications as per School medical database, to obtain any necessary ambulance, medical assistance and/or emergency evacuation services deemed appropriate for my daughter’s safety or well-being.

I authorise any appropriately qualified medical or paramedical persons to administer any medical treatment (including anaesthetics and blood transfusions) which, in their opinion, is required for my daughter. I accept responsibility for any medical and other necessary costs incurred.

I also declare that if a personal gear list is provided for my daughter’s safe participation, I will endeavour to ensure she attends with all the items listed.
