General contact with home A poor mobile phone signal at High Adventure, and students will not have access to power points. Because of this no students should bring a mobile phone with them. No pay phones. Homesickness is a banned word Staff do have access to a phone in case of emergency, or if a pupil needs to be picked up from camp. You will be provided with this number before students leave.
Behaviour ‘Happy Hardworking and Courteous’ Parents will be asked to pick up any child who misbehaves or prove to be a danger to themselves or others. This has happened in the past, but not since we have been visiting the High Adventure site.
