Yes we have - here you go

  1. It is advisable to keep your room locked, hide values from the window. The school has a small safe that can be used.
  2. Do not swim alone. 
  3. Use common sense. Do not carry valuables clearly visible like cameras, iPods, purses or anything that can easily be seen and taken. Be aware of what is going on around you.
  4. Avoid “trouble situations” in the streets such as people arguing, car accidents or people trying to catch a thief.
  5. When new students and volunteers start at RVA an introduction to all people working at the Academy are done by a tour or a “Farmers Lunch or Common Working Day”. If you see people on the campus, who do not work or live at RVA please notify a teacher.
  6. It is advisable that each team has a list of important information on each student such as full name, DOB, blood type, allergies, important information related to the person and an address and phone numbers of a relative.
  7. Do not go outside the 30 acres campus of RVA alone.

 

Other Advice

  1. Dress appropriately on the campus common areas. There is a lot of “official traffic” in the area such as government officials, employed staff, hikers and other visitors.
  2. Keep you own insurance to protect your valuables such as cameras, iPhones or laptops.
  3. Family or friends from abroad are welcome and they can stay at the Nature and Hiking Center.
  4. If a student wishes to terminate the program, then the person should leave Richmond Vale Academy within 3-5 days. If more days are needed a special agreement has to be made with a teacher.
