Dear Whanau

Our Year 4 / 5 / 6 camp to Woodend Christian Camp in Woodend will take place on Monday 31st March - Wednesday 2nd April.  The aims of our camp are to provide students with an educational experience outside the classroom, to foster team/whanau spirit and provide opportunities to co-operate with their classmates and to support our school values of responsibility, respect, achievement and self-belief/strength.  In order to use this wonderful camp and its facilities the trust ask that all campers participate in a gospel programme on Monday evening.  

We will require parents to support with supervision over the three days and two nights.  We may also require extra parents for the drop off and pick up of children from camp, leaving school at 9.30 on the Monday and leaving Woodend at approx 2pm on the Wednesday to return to school.

if you can provide assistance with transport and/or supervision for all or part of the camp.  We need as much parental support as possible in order to ensure that our camp takes place.  We will need six parents to come with us for the entire camp and enough transport to and from Woodend for 56 people.  I will need to confirm all parental involvement by Friday 7th March.

The cost of the Year 4 / 5 / 6 camp this year is $91 due to the Red Cross Grant allocating $20 per child per camp, allowing us to reduce the cost.  The cost includes all activities, accommodation and food.   If your child took part in the Raffle Fundraising last year, this will be deducted from your total.

We would appreciate you completing the contact information, medical details, transport and parent help form below and return these back to me by Monday 3rd March.
