Public school activities and indemnity forms

Nothing beats the excitement of going on a school activity (“activity”) for various reasons within or outside school premises. Added to that excitement, is being away from class or being away from home. An activity may have its risks, which is one of the reasons why parents/legal guardians need to consent to an activity. The school will try to protect itself against different forms of liability by requesting parents to sign an indemnity form for the activity. The South African Schools Act (“Act”) sheds some light on this topic.
