Field trip safety

The Punch - - SCOOP -

Dear kids,

Field trip days are of­ten the best days of the en­tire school year. That’s why it is im­por­tant that you mind some ba­sic rules to keep the trip safe and en­joy­able.

• Don’t get reck­less on the bus:

Mis­be­haviour on the bus can get you into trou­ble and ruin your day.

• Don’t wan­der off:

Lis­ten care­fully when the teacher gives in­struc­tions about stick­ing with the group or stick­ing with an as­signed part­ner even when go­ing to the re­stroom. Don’t ever wan­der off on your own, or your trip could end badly. If you break this rule, you could end up with the teacher as your part­ner.

• Re­spect na­ture:

Some field trips will bring you in con­tact with an­i­mals or plants. For your own safety, be mind­ful of po­ten­tial dan­gers and don’t as­sume you can tug, pull, tease, or touch things as you please.

• Don’t rough­house:

You may visit a fac­tory con­tain­ing equip­ment with mov­ing parts, or a mu­seum with rooms full of pot­tery and glass, or a river­side with fast-run­ning wa­ter. Think about the po­ten­tial haz­ards be­fore you go, and re­mem­ber not to push or pull on friends.
