Local Excursions

Local excursions are excursions to locations within walking distance of the school and do not involve ‘Adventure Activities’. Local excursions that your child may participate in could include:

  • Physical Education lessons and activities across the road at Lois Twohig Reserve
  • Environmental Walking lessons around the school area


Notification of local excursions

Wooranna Park Primary will not seek further consent from you before local excursions take place. However, we will provide advance notice to parents/carers of upcoming local excursions through the school communication channels.  For local excursions that occur on a recurring basis, Wooranna Park Primary will notify Parents/Guardians once only prior to the commencement of the recurring event.


Please keep the school informed of any updated contact details to ensure you receive these notifications.


First aid and medical attention

Where necessary, school staff will administer first aid.  School staff will also seek emergency medical attention for your child if it is considered reasonably necessary. Any costs associated with student injury rest with Parents/Guardians unless the Department of Education and Training is liable in negligence (liability is not automatic).


Accident and ambulance cover

The Department of Education and Training does not provide student accident insurance or ambulance cover. Parents may wish to obtain this cover, depending on their health insurance arrangements and any other personal considerations.


Please ensure you complete the local excursion consent form annually, noting that you may withdraw your consent for any/all local excursions at any time prior to the day of the excursion by contacting the school office on 03 9795 2007.
