The activities are guided, and ran by skilled instructors. The school principle is responsible for the activities, and they can supply further information on practical arrangements as needed.

Activities require at least four pupils to register for the group. If the group enrolment does not meet the required number of students, the school will advise that the activity group will not be available.
