To provide a safe and inclusive space for all our participants, we expect all participants to abide by our Code of Conduct. Additionally, as this is a school-sponsored event, Sir John A. Macdonald Secondary School's code of conduct and all rules and procedures are in effect, including but not limited to:

  • Use and/or possession of alcohol or illegal drugs are not permitted. If supervising staff or security have reason to believe, in their sole discretion, that a participant have consumed alcohol or illegal drugs before or during the event, or is in possession of them at the event, the participant shall not be permitted to enter and/or remain at the event. There is also the possibility of a 3-10 day suspension from your school and you may be charged by police.
  • Smoking is not permitted at the event.
  • Any inappropriate, disrespectful or offensive behaviour will not be tolerated. Any breach of either the JAMHacks code of conduct or Sir John A.
