On Friday, we launched the Activities Week programme to all our S3 cohort. A letter was sent home with an overview of all the trips on offer. We hope that with the large variety on offer here, there will be something for everyone. All trips have a residential aspect except the Sailing week which will come home each night.
As stated in the letter, financial support may be available and if this is something you wish to know more about please tick the sheet when returning it with the choices for a trip and we will get back in touch. The deadline for the letters to be returned with choices is Friday 6 September 2019. Beyond this date, we aim to organise the groups as quickly as possible and then individual trip leaders will be in touch with specific details about the trip and payment plans etc.
As always, we cannot guarantee attendance on any trip, and if trips are not fully subscribed they may not run. Equally, some trips are limited in numbers and if these are oversubscribed we will pull names out of a hat. In these cases, second or third choices will be used. We have encouraged all the S3s to think about what interests them rather than planning a trip away with their friends, as we are confident that there will be lots of opportunities to make new friends whichever trip they decide to take part in.
The benefits of trips such as these are well documented and we hope they build confidence in our learners, build social skills and are a really enjoyable way to learn outside of the classroom environment.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with myself or any of the trip leaders.
