Requirements for School Trips and Athletics Events

For any ISNS school trip taking place off-campus, the following steps must be taken:

  • At least two adult chaperones must accompany students on the trip
  • The teacher: student ratio is 10 : 1
  • Trips involving male and female students must have a minimum of one male and one female adult chaperone

Waiver and Emergency Medical Authorization

A waiver and emergency medical authorization form must be signed by a student’s parent or guardian prior to them attending an off-campus trip.

The waiver and emergency medical authorization constitutes and is evidence of a parent’s agreement to:

  1. Accept general liability for the participation of your child, indemnify and hold harmless the International School of Nanshan Shenzhen, its Board of Directors, its employees and agents, either jointly or separately, from and against any and all claims, damages, causes of action or injuries incurred or resulting from your child’s participation, except in case of willful negligence.
  2. Authorize the faculty chaperones to provide or cause to be provided such medical services as deemed necessary for the safety and protection of my son/daughter in the event of accident, or illness, and agree to cover any cost incurred.

First Aid Training

In the safety interests of ISNS staff and students, ISNS will provide free basic first aid training for all staff members at the beginning of each academic school year.

Emergency Action Plan (EAP)

Purpose of the EAP:

In the event of a serious or life-threatening condition that occurs during a school trip, sports competition or practice, an emergency action plan (EAP) is needed.  Although staff members will endeavour to keep students safe by minimising all risks, emergencies can occur at anytime and during any activity. All school activities leaders must therefore be prepared and familiar with how to respond in such situations, as outlined in this emergency action plan.

Need for the EAP:

This EAP will determine the course of action that should be taken by the supervising member of staff during an emergency situation. Although serious emergencies are rare, when they do happen, a fast and pre-planned response can make the difference between a successful and unsuccessful reaction to the emergency. An EAP that is well planned and rehearsed will provide responders with the approach they need for an effective and appropriate response.
