If you answer YES, please complete the following:
The information collected will be used by the school for enrolment and therefore forms an essential part of the information held by the school on your child. The records made from this information may be viewed on request at the school. The information collected may be disclosed to appropriate education, health and welfare authorities and for data gathering purposes by the New Zealand Ministry of Education, in accordance with the principles of the Privacy Act. It will not be disclosed to any other person or agency unless such disclosure is authorised or required by law.
I agree that the school will take action on my behalf in case of sudden illness or injury to my child. This includes incidents at school and off-site, where applicable.
From time to time there are opportunities to enhance your child's learning through education outside of the classroom (EOTC), school day-trips, sports days and some events like shows in school. Parents are informed prior to such trips or events. For convenience, we only ask parents/carers to sign this EOTC permission once. It will stay in place for all of the years that your child is at Horsham Downs School unless we are told otherwise. If there is a change in circumstances and you would like to change your permission choice, please contact the school office and we can amend our records.
Please note that EOTC activities requiring an overnight stay, e.g. camps etc, will require a specific consent separate to this agreement.
