Student supervision and support

Schools are responsible for the duty of care of their students throughout the event excursion. Schools must provide a staffing ratio (that includes a teacher-in-charge) in accordance with the Department of Education, Catholic Education Office and the Association of Independent School of WA’s excursion staffing ratio. Please ensure all attending staff are wearing clear identification.

RAC recommends that any student who has experienced recent personal road trauma or road trauma within their family or friends do not attend the event. 

Student support

Counsellors as well as Red Frog volunteers will be on hand throughout the event for counselling and support services. Chaplains from our Emergency Services partners will also be in attendance.

RAC Recommends
  • School Chaplains or Counsellors attend the event to provide additional support.
  • Schools hold a de-brief in class following the event and provide additional counselling if required.

Medical needs

Teachers-in-charge must be aware of any student medical concerns as students may be exposed to situations which could trigger reactions such as fainting, anxiety or an asthma attack. Teachers must carry a copy of any relevant Student Health Care Plans in the case of an emergency or if treatment is required. A first aid room is located on the first floor of the venue.

Special needs

Any students with special needs must be accompanied by an allocated assistant at all times. Please contact us if this applies to any of your students.
