Newsham to France Update

Dear All,

It is getting very exciting now.  In just over a week we will be on our way to France.  I wanted to pass on a few final reminders.

Please arrive at school between 10:25pm and 10:40pm on Sunday 8th December.

It is essential that we leave at this time, so please be prompt, but not early.

Please bring all medication in a clearly labelled box or bag.  If it is prescribed medicine, it should have the chemist label with dosage on.

Money should be in two separate labelled money bags or purses (£10 English money and up to €30 Euros).

Please ensure that your child has a packed breakfast and lunch that will be suitable to be carried on the bus through the night and the following day.

When you arrive at school, please register immediately and hand in all medication and money to Mrs Watson.  When all pupils are present, we will ask parents to leave the hall, and will give our final instructions and toilet opportunities to the children.

We will then be setting off, travelling through the night to our Eurostar destination. We are due to board the train at around 7:00 am on Monday morning.

Please remember that pupils are not allowed to bring a phone or any other electronic communication device. They also do not need cameras as each group will have a school ipad.

I have put up the presentation slide show on the website that we displayed on the Parent Information Evening. It has details about the visit and another copy of the suggested kit list.

We will keep in touch via Facebook as requested at the Parent Meeting. This includes updates about our predicted return time on the evening of Friday 13th December.

Keep working on the French!

Kind regards

The French Visit Team
