Terms and Conditions
To ensure that the experience of the Courage to Care in the Classroom program flows seamlessly on the day and is as beneficial as possible for students, please:
- Appoint a member of the teaching staff as a Coordinating Teacher. He/she will be the key contact person with Courage to Care. This allows for easy and effective communication.
- This person is also responsible for:
- Submitting the above booking form at least 4 weeks from the program date
- Informing teachers and students to be aware and respect that all people conducting the program are volunteers who offer their valuable time in order to promote the message of social acceptance
- Our experience is that prior preparation enhances the excursion for students, as well as serves to better embed learning so if you have the opportunity to do some we would highly recommend it.
- Teacher’s Booklets will be provided to the coordinating teacher
- Previsit and post-visit preparation materials will be provided in soft copy format to distribute to other attending teachers/classes
On the day

- Turn their mobile phones on silent and not make/receive any calls
