Finally, the week of School Camp has arrived! Here follows details of our departure and general reminders about the week ahead.
**Children who are not going to camp, arrive and leave school at normal times Tuesday – Friday and report to Mrs Caldwell each morning for registration. These pupils have a unique and fun week to look forward to and Mrs Caldwell has discussed this with them already.**
Monday – Normal school day for all.
Tuesday – The bus pick up time is 09:30 so I suggest the pupils ensure they are in school between 08:50 and 09:10 at the latest. This allows time for last minute toilet stops etc! Children should arrive with their luggage and make their way through the main reception (office) as we will congregate in the music room. It would be helpful if parents would then leave and wait in the carpark to wave us off! Otherwise, it’ll be difficult to count heads and organise an excited bunch of P7s! I appreciate your support in this. The journey should be less than 90 minutes and children will find out their dorms and groups on arrival. Our first meal is lunch before the afternoon activities begin. It would be an idea to bring a snack and a drink to have to hand when we arrive.
Thursday evening disco – this is not a Halloween themed event. Children should bring smart casual clothes for this. No-one should bring anything linked to Halloween eg. masks or costumes.
Friday – We are due to leave camp at 10am so will be back before the end of the normal school day of 12:25pm. I will contact the school en route who will send a text update to you all as to the time of our arrival. Children can go home from school early IF picked up by a parent/carer otherwise will have to remain in school until 12:25pm if not picked up.
Weather – Looking at the forecasts, it is looking dry for the week ahead but COLD! So, make sure your child brings lots of layers, a pair of gloves, warm head and neck gear; not forgetting a waterproof coat and boots.
Medication – we will take any medication we have in school for P7 pupils with us.
Reminder – no electronic devices or phones should be brought to camp. Disposable cameras are allowed.
Thanks for your support, I hope I have included everything!
