Year 7 are having a blast at the time of writing. I’m sure when you read this though you will have already either thrown out the muddy clothes or have a washing machine full and have some very tired children at home. It is important that they tell you about camp and you make it into a positive experience even if there were some ‘bad’ bits.

Year 10 will be heading off on their adventure at 8:15 on Monday morning, please aim to be at school by 7.45 ready for departure. Students need a packed recess for Monday, please put it in a container/bag and label it as it will be put under the bus for collection when we stop. Please note, no bags are allowed on the buses, water bottles only.
