Other Considerations:

Free-time:
Summit delegates will have free time outside of the summit program, any activities conducted during this time will be at the discretion of the supervising teacher(s). The Coast Hotel has a fitness area, swimming pool, hot tub etc. The use of these facilities is at the discretion of the supervising teacher(s).

Rooming:
Inside Education has reserved a block of rooms at the hotel; all rooms assigned to a school are in close proximity to each other. Student rooms are double-occupancy and the supervising teacher has assigned rooming lists.

Behaviour expectations:
Summit delegates are representing their schools and communities, and are expected to maintain the standards of behaviour set forth by their school and their supervising teacher(s). Delegates will be further expected to adhere to all school division policies with respect to the use of alcohol and drugs.
