  3. Schools should engage in danger free excursions. But if risks must be taken measures to prevent loss such as this should be taken. (70)

  4. Total negligence from the private school and it management. They should be held responsible. You can’t organise an excursion to the river without safety wears and life jacket. Those students would have hardly drown wearing jackets.
