Compulsory School Camps
No replies to this topic

We moved our son to a new school at the beginning of this year and found out at the beginning of the month that there is a camp planned for next week. We had no way of paying the fees for it on such short notice so we decided not to send him. The other day he came home saying that one of the teachers has told him that it is a compulsory camp and he's required to go.
Are schools allowed to have compulsory camps? I don't recall signing anything when we enrolled him saying he must participate in these sorts of activities... Anyone else come across this issue with their kids schools?
