Field trip safety
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.
