Education Outside the Classroom (EOTC) Blanket Consent Form

"*" indicates required fields

Parent Consent Form (Enrolment)

Education Outside the Classroom (EOTC) is the name given to all events and activities that occur outside the classroom, both on school grounds, and off-site.

Our students participate in a wide range of learning opportunities within and outside the school grounds. Senior students participate in a wide range of sporting events outside the school throughout the year. All class teachers are encouraged to provide extension and enrichment opportunities for their students. These learning opportunities sometimes require travel outside the school.

The school uses a process to identify and manage risks at every level of activity and this process is monitored by the board and the principal. We recognise four levels of activities, each with specific requirements regarding parental/caregiver consent.




At school, or within the immediate local environs, for example, sports events, fun days, nature studies.

Consent required: Blanket permission provided on enrolment.


Off-site events occurring entirely in school time and finishing no later than 4 pm, for example, zone sports, team sport events, class trips to the museum.

Parents are advised of the finishing time if it is later than 3:15 pm.

Consent required: Blanket permission provided on enrolment, but parents are informed that the event is to occur.


Off-site or on-site events occurring in one day involving risk assessed to be greater than that associated with the average family activity, for example, water activities (apart from swimming sports), rock climbing.

Consent required: Parent/caregiver informed consent is required for each specific event.


Events occurring overnight, for example, school camp.

Consent required: Parent/caregiver informed consent is required for each specific event.

By signing this form, you consent to your child participating in level 1 and 2 activities. For any level 3 or 4 activity, you will always be provided with a specific consent form.

I/we give permission for our child, to participate in level 1 and 2 Education Outside the Classroom activities.

I/we have provided the school with up-to-date medical and other information on the school enrolment form and will notify the school of any changes to that information.
