If your child has any medication that you would like them to have during the trip such as travel sickness tablets, hay fever tablets, paracetamol etc. then
they should all be given to Ms Helgeson on OR BEFORE the departure day, depending on the nature of the medication.
They should all be in a clear plastic bag with your child's name and any instructions clearly labeled.
Your child will NOT carry their own passport.
This will need to be handed into the school office
by Friday 4th March 2016.
These will be kept in a locked safe and the child will be given them prior to going through immigration and then collected in again when through the other side.
If your child does not have a British passport, please let this be known to Miss Helgeson this evening.
YOUR child's EHIC card should be handed in with their passport.
These are FREE from www.ehic.org.uk
The Return Journey
We return on the Brittany ferry
LG24901 departing from France at 2pm.
We should arrive back at Gartree approx 12.30am Saturday.
Expectations of behaviour
All pupils and staff on the trip are representing Gartree High School and Great Britain.
Therefore model behaviour is
expected at all times.
Pupils will be expected to
be polite and courteous.
Contact with home.
Ms Helgeson will keep in contact with schood and information will be posted on Twitter.
Pupils will have limited access to mobile phones. They will be able to contact you in the evenings.
The pupils have been split into 4 activity groups with an equal number of boys and girls in each. This is so that we can register groups quickly and a member of staff will be responsible for each group.
Your child will need to stay in this group. I have put them with at least one friend.
We are based in 6 main dormitories during our break. Girls and boys are seperate and staff are in rooms next door to pupils.
There is another school at the centre when we are there and we expect excellent behaviour in the dormitory.
Your child nominated 3 friends that they would like to be with and all children have been roomed with others they have chosen. Dorms are for 10-11 children each.
There are 4 dormitories that pupils
will staying in. These sleep up to 14 pupils each.
There is a member of staff by each dormitory.
Dormitories are strictly boys or girls.
Pupils should take with them roughly
between £50- £80 in Euros.
This should be changed before we depart. (4 euros charge for cinema on Friday needs to be handed in separately).
Pupils will be responsible for their own money, so it would be preferable for them to know their daily limit, so they don't spend it all on the ferry!
WARNING Pupils! Once its gone, its gone!
Medical Form and Pupil Declaration
These should have been returned on or before this evening. Let me know if you need duplicate forms.
