  • Tanzania Expedition 2016/17 Waiver Form



    This waiver and release of liability agreement (“Release”) must be read carefully both by any participant in the Tanzania Expedition ("Participant") and, in full, by their Parent or Guardian (by which we mean those with parental responsibility for or legal custody of the Participant). This is important as it includes a release of liability and waiver of legal rights. "We" and "Nord Anglia" in this Release refer to Nord Anglia Education Inc. and its worldwide group companies, including Nord Anglia Education Limited (UK).


    Please be aware that by participating in the Tanzania Expedition, as consideration for the services which are provided to the Participant, you will be expressly assuming the risk and legal liability of your (or your child's) participation.


    This means, to the fullest extent permissible by law, waiving and releasing any rights to claim for injuries, damages, or loss which you (or your child) might sustain as a result of any activities connected with participating in the Tanzania Expedition.


    Therefore please do not accept the terms of this agreement unless you have read it in its entirety. However, it is a condition of participating in the Tanzania Expedition that both the Participant and his/her Parent or Guardian indicate their acceptance of this Release.


    Release by the Participant


    I, the Participant, hereby confirm that:


    1. I wish to participate in the Tanzania Expedition and understand that the activities as described in more detail in the Tanzania Information Pack may include services projects and safari trips.
    2. I acknowledge that partaking in the Tanzania Expedition may involve physical risks and include activities that are potentially hazardous, such as: travel to and from Tanzania, accommodation/transportation whilst in Tanzania, and any activities scheduled whilst within Tanzania (including services projects and safari trips).
    3. I am medically able to participate and fully partake in the Tanzania Expedition and all activities scheduled to form part of it, and that the information on Medical Information Form is complete and accurate.
    4. I agree and acknowledge that medical and travel insurance is my sole responsibility, and that I must obtain adequate and valid medical and travel insurance for the Tanzania Expedition prior to participating in it. I will provide proof to Nord Anglia of such insurance policies and understand and agree that Nord Anglia may, at its absolute discretion, refuse to permit me to participate in the Tanzania Expedition if I fail to produce adequate proof of such insurance.
    5. I agree to abide by any decision of Nord Anglia in respect of my ability and suitability to safely participate in the Tanzania Expedition for any reason, including owing to reasons of insurance cover or any aspect of my personal fitness and/or behaviour.
    6. I certify that I will abide by all of the guidelines and rules related to the Tanzania Expedition and that I will adhere to all instructions and training given to me by Nord Anglia or any responsible person appointed by Nord Anglia during the Tanzania Expedition. I am voluntarily and knowingly participating in and assuming all risks associated with participating in the Tanzania Expedition including, but not limited to: falls; contact with other participants; the effects of weather, including high heat and/or humidity, health and traffic; physical tasks; wild animal safari; and the conditions of the road, all such risks being explained to and appreciated by me.
    7. I grant permission to Nord Anglia and its respective affiliates (including the school) to use any photographs, motion pictures, recordings, descriptions, or any other record of the Tanzania Expedition for any legitimate purpose, including marketing and use on any school (or affiliate) website.
    8. I understand that the school, and Nord Anglia, will be providing a level of training (which I agree to follow) adequate for the nature of the activities, and will take reasonable care of participants throughout the Tanzania Expedition, wherever reasonably practicable. Nevertheless I also agree to take responsibility for my own actions, my health and physical safety, and that of others throughout my participation in the Tanzania Expedition.
    9. having read this Release, and knowing these facts, and in consideration of your accepting my entry into the Tanzania Expedition, both for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf:
      1. I hereby release Nord Anglia (and its affiliates and employees), together with all sponsors of the expedition and their representatives or successors (together, the “ Released Parties ”) from and waive all present and future claims, actions or liabilities of any kind, known or unknown, arising out of my participation in the Tanzania Expedition to the fullest extent permissible at law; and
      2. I further waive my insurers’ right to make a claim against any of the Released Parties based on payments by the insurers to me or on my behalf for any reason (provided that this subsection (b) shall not apply if its application would invalidate my insurance protection).
