Safety of Argentina & Chile<br />Traffic accidents are the biggest danger to life in these two countries<br />Crime is relatively low<br />Pickpocketing the biggest crime against tourists<br />Protests do occur from time to time, but well advertised and we should be able to avoid if one is scheduled to occur.<br />
Behaviour During Trip<br />Students are to comply with laws of the country as well as all school rules and expectations while on the trip. <br />Failure to do so can and will likely result in disciplinary action upon return<br />Any behaviour or actions that can or does endanger the student or anyone else is a basis for immediate return of the student to New Zealand<br />
Supervision During Trip<br />It will be impossible for me to supervise your child 100% of the time we are away. <br />You must understand supervision will not be 24 hour—7 days a week.<br />You must agree for them to participate under these conditions. <br />I will apply due care and meet reasonable expectations for a group of this age and capability. <br />However, there will be large periods of time where the students will be “wandering together” without me, or be left alone in their hostel rooms, etc. <br />Students will always have my cellphone number, and be expected to follow the instructions of their host family or myself to ensure their safety. <br />When sent to explore without me they will have maps and be with at least one other student, as well as have a “safety checkpoint” to meet back at. <br />Beyond this, I expect them to apply due caution as the mature young adults they are, and that you as their parent are permitting to leave the country. <br />
