Dear A.S.S. Editor
My son is being enrolled at Small Wonder (Blk 327B Anchorvale Road #01-322 Singapore 542327). Recently I received a letter from the school regarding their excursion on 8th March 2017 to KidsSTOP.
In the letter I quote:
“I, (parent/guardian) NRIC of (Child’s Name) from (class), hereby give my consent to Small [email protected] to allow my child to participate in the excursion to KidsSTOP on 8 March 2017. I shall not hold the centre responsible for any accident that may occur during the outing……..
I have attached the letter in the mail and I would like to ask your advice on whether the school has such a right to make this statement, which shows that they are irresponsible and do not have a sense of duty in caring for their students. Is this a violation of the Child Care Act? I would like to ask if you think it is correct for ChildCare Center to relieve all their responsibilities in taking care of our kids while on excursion.
