School Excursion Policy 

Queen Victoria Market Pty Ltd aims to provide a safe and friendly market where all customers feel comfortable and can enjoy what the Market has to offer free from harassment or discrimination.

Students and young people are important visitors to the Market and we like to think that your students will take away a positive experience from your school excursion.  Your student’s experience will be made more enjoyable if your school follows the following simple requirements when visiting the Market.

1. Although the Market offers discounted tours for student groups, which we recommend as a way of adding value to the experience, schools are not required to join a paid tour as part of their excursion.

2. However, where you have not booked a paid tour of the Market as part of your excursion, we ask that you contact our office prior to arriving at the Market so we are aware of your plan to visit. We also ask that you notify us upon arrival.

3. Schools should ensure that there is sufficient adult supervision for the number of students on the excursion and students should not be left to wander the Market in large groups unsupervised.

4. Students should be asked to respect the rights and feelings of other shoppers and to always act in a courteous and considerate manner.

5. Where students are required to approach Market Traders for information as part of their structured activities we ask that they be instructed not to take up more than a few moments of a Trader’s time and that you ensure that different groups of students do not to approach the same Trader multiple time to ask the same question.

 We hope you enjoy your excursion to Queen Victoria Market and thank you for considering the Market as a place of interest.
