Few things get schoolchildren more excited than a field trip. Whether it’s to the zoo, a museum, an aquarium, or a local sports stadium nearby, children welcome field trips as a chance to break routine and experience something new. That one day spent on a field trip, experiencing things that are out of the ordinary, could teach them lessons that they wouldn’t have learned as well in school.
Nevertheless, adults often worry about what could go wrong during a field trip, and rightfully so. There’s a chance that one of the pupils will lose their way, get hurt, or suddenly fall ill. If such occurrences are already quite scary when they happen in school, what more if they happen in an unfamiliar environment?
That said, there’s value in having a well-organised field trip, being prepared for emergencies, and keeping children in sync with their adult guardians. Whether you are a teacher, a parent chaperone, or another adult tasked with supervising children, we at Australia Wide First Aid are happy to share these tips on keeping your charges as safe as possible during a field trip.
