Remove and Inters Bonding Weekend: Information required
6th September 2018
Dear Remove Parents and Guardians,
Welcome back to the new school year. As always it should be an exciting start to the year with the Remove and Inters Bonding Weekend between 21st and 23rd September.
This year we are heading to Tregoyd House in the Brecon Beacons for an activity-packed weekend and a chance to make new friends and learn new skills. We will be leaving school at around 12.45pm on Friday 21st so girls will need to come to school that day in their home clothes rather than their uniform and with all their luggage. Please see the kit list opposite of clothing and items to bring so the girls can see what to pack for the weekend. We will return to school around 4.45pm on Sunday 23rd September. Please collect your daughters promptly as they will be tired.
Planned activities include Kayaking, Aeroball, Climbing, Survivor, Challenge Course, Sports Night and Cluedo and these will be run by PGL instructors.
There is a shop at the centre which will be open after dinner for the girls to purchase snacks, treats and small souvenirs if they would like to, but we do not encourage them to bring large amounts of money – £5 would be a reasonable amount.
We also ask that expensive equipment and electronic devices are not brought along so the girls can focus on being with their friends, having a relaxing time and not worrying about losing items. If any expensive item is brought, then please make sure it is insured for damage, breakage or loss on your home contents policy
As this is an activity based weekend it is important that we have all necessary information regarding health, medical needs, dietary requirements and other special needs which may affect your daughter’s ability to participate in the activities offered. Please complete the consent, information and medical forms by Friday 7th September. This is a tight turn around date, but it is vital since the trip is so close to the start of the school year.
At the Welcome to the New School Year evening on Thursday 13th September I will provide any additional information about the trip and answer any questions about it. Of course if you have any questions or concerns before then, or you are not able to make that evening meeting, then you are most welcome to contact me at school and I am happy to meet you individually or chat on the telephone.
I look forward to receiving your completed forms .
