I/We understand that Ontario Provincial Honour Band activities involve various elements of risk and that each person has a different capacity for participating in these activities. Accidents and injury may occur while participating in these activities. These accidents can occur without any fault on the part of the student, the Ontario Band Association (OBA), its employees or agents of the facility where the activities are taking place.
I/We understand that a student’s participation in the Honour Band is by invitation only and that the invitation may be revoked at the sole discretion of the OBA, in response to student violations of general conduct or to other irresponsible or untrustworthy student behaviour which, in the opinion of school staff, might place the safety, enjoyment or effectiveness of the event at risk. I/We acknowledge that an OBA decision to withdraw a student is final and not subject to appeal.
I/We hereby agree and promise that our child, ward or self is able to participate and understands that the choice to participate brings with it the assumption of those risks and results which are part of these activities.
I/We agree that the Ontario Band Association or its employees, servants or agents shall not be liable for any injury to our child, ward or self or loss or damage to our child, ward or self’s personal property arising from, or in any way resulting from, his/her participation in these activities, unless such injury, loss or damage is caused by the sole negligence of the OBA or its employees, servants or agents while acting within the scope of their duties.
