ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF RISK
There is an element of risk with the activities on this programme. This is what makes it an adventure. These risks are managed by the facilitators who make decisions about acceptable risks, whilst enabling students to build their skills, knowledge, experience, confidence and judgment.
Facilitators will make decisions on behalf of the group about the acceptability of certain risks. Participants must follow the instructions of Facilitators / Guides in regards to safety and risk management.
I understand that there are risks associated with activities in the outdoors. I am aware that my facilitators will take all reasonable steps to manage these risks to an acceptable level and to set appropriate safety standards. At any time during the wānanga I understand that I am free to ask information on an activity and make my own decision on the level of involvement suitable for me alone. Where the level of risk has been stated unacceptable by a facilitator, or me, I agree to refrain from taking any actions affecting the safety of myself or others whilst I am taking part in this wānanga.
