The appellant was a teacher supervising an overseas school trip during which she voluntarily decided to participate in a rope swing activity and injured herself doing so. The rope swing was not an authorised or approved activity for either staff or students. The question before the Commission was whether she had suffered an injury within the meaning of that term in s 32 of the Workers’ Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003.
Scott McLeod QC led R M O’Gorman for the appellant, instructed by Holding Redlich.
The judgment is available here.
