Code of Conduct

We desire all who attend the Year 12 Grad Trip to have a wonderful and uplifting experience. To achieve this, we have published this Code of Conduct so that appropriate behaviour and standards are maintained throughout the convention. In order to attend the Year 12 Grad Trip you must agree to abide by the values and standards in the "For the strength of youth" booklet. You must also arrange to have an interview with your Bishop or Branch President prior to the convention. Those who are not members of the Church are also required to read and agree to the terms, values and standards, and to have an interview with their friends Bishop. Enquiries will be made to your bishop to ensure these interviews have been carried out. 

We recognise and celebrate the cultural diversity of all attending the Year 12 Grad Trip. The following policies have been put in place with respect to behaviour:

  • All participants are to follow the direction of leaders at all times.
  • Respect must be shown to residents in the area of events. Loud noise and bad behaviour at any hour that disturbs others is unacceptable.
  • Absolutely no alcohol, smoking or non-prescription drugs on the event premises at any time. Anyone found in posession of or affected by these substances may be excluded from any further participation in the event.
  • Any form of violence, threat of violence or bullying to a person or their property will not be tolerated.
  • Sexual harassment and any unlawful behaviour will not be tolerated. Actions, words, jokes or comments that are derogatory and based on any person's gender, race, ethnicity, age, religion or disability will not be tolerated.
  • Swearing and coarse language offends the speaker, the hearer and the spirit and is unacceptable on any occasion.
  • Appropriate use of Technology must be managed during the Graduation Trip, including taking and sharing photos.
  • There is to be no sleeping over in other youth's units, and there is to be no males in females units and vice versa.

Any Person who violates this Code of Conduct may be asked to leave the Year 12 Grad Trip. In this case, parents of the youth will be contacted and maybe asked to collect their child from the event, as and when discussed by our event leaders. If parents refuse to collect their child, then at a last resort option, event leaders may organise Uber transport or similar type service for the youth to their home at the expense of the parents. This last resort option will be thoroughly discussed with the parents of the youth prior to commencing with this action.
