Educational and Leisure Trips

It is essential that any trip organized by students include a male and female academic staff member. Information on all such trips must be given to the Senior Student Counsellor’s Office two days prior to the trip. Any trip that would result in hostel students arriving later than 8.30pm would require written permission. The written permission must be forwarded through the Senior Student Counsellor’s Office to the residential sub-warden. This has to be done prior to the trip.
