Ski Trip Information

posted 8 Jan 2019, 02:13 by N Nelson

Not long now until we hit the slopes!

I need to collect all passports and EHIC cards this week please. Students must bring their passports to Mr Powell, who is in the on call room, by Thursday 10th January. I can then keep these safe while we are away.

I have had emails from the hotel and the ski tour rep over the Christmas break finalising everything. I am currently looking at evening entertainment which may include some of the following - Movie night, Quiz night, Bumboarding, Town Trail, Karaoke, In’Vertigo (indoor climbing and obstacle course), Ice Skating and Luge on Rails.

There will also be opportunities for students to go into town in the evening. Please note this will be in groups but unsupervised.

Students will be responsible for their own spending money whilst away. As I said at the meeting between £15/£20 pound a day would be plenty. Please remind them not to spend it all at the airport.

If you have medication that you would like me to look after during the week please get it to me by the end of the week and include full instructions regarding dosage.

Can you please make sure that any snacks students bring for the journey don’t contain nuts because of potential allergies.

The travel company have confirmed their pick up and drop off times which are as follows.

The coach is picking us up from Ryde Academy on Saturday 12th January at 7:00am - please arrive by 6:45 am so we have time to load luggage. Baggage allowance for the trip is a 20kg suitcase. Students will also be able to take hand luggage weighing no more than 5kg.

We will be dropped off at Ryde Academy on Sunday 20th January 1:00am
