I attended a ALL COHORT excursion with the Year 10. This was the RAA Street Smart High Seminar.
I seek to look at risk management plan for this excursion, see what content this seminar involves and learn about how the teacher predict what is going to happen in terms of student reactions with what is occurring on these day.
Observed that for these types of excursion the following ratio of teaching staff to students occurred… 2-3 Teacher per 30 students,
The councillor also attend to ensure that if students had adverse reactions to content, they could support them and not have main supervising teachers taken from supervision of group.
Identified that students were to be in pairs when going to the toilet etc.
There were concerns that some of the girls may be want to sneak of meet with the boys form the surround high schools.
Importance of roll call… In homeroom, before getting on the bus and then when back at school.
The Year 10 Coordinator prior to promoting this excursion was required to complete and submit a Risk Management – identifying potential risks for staff and students.
Main risk for this excursion – Bus accident and physical/emotional harm that would cause but then also the emotionality of the content and then feelings and experience these may bring up for our girls.
In the lead-up to the beginning of the seminar…
Teacher identified at risk student (those who may have adverse reactions) and spread themselves between them.
The coordinator sat behind the entire group to have the full picture of the student cohort and can see student’s reactions.
I was positioned in the middle of students within my homeroom.
AFTER EXCURSION: WHS Induction took place.
I will have the opportunity to meet some of my classes and observe my mentor teachers in action.
I have a people and culture induction with my Site Director and will be officially inducted in to the site. I will be given a key, an office and a computer login.
