Maria Island Camp 2020 November 3 – NOVEMBER 6

This camp is for all secondary and primary students. It is an essential part of our school curriculum and forms the base of work that we will follow in the next weeks. The curriculum emphases will be on writing, history, science, drama, outdoor education, environmental studies and art. Adults accompanying students will be Wilma, Steve, Bob, Pascal, Ben, Anoushka, Cheryl and Lucy. We hope that it will be as enjoyable for teachers and students as it always has been.

Students need to bring:

Sleeping bag

Towel and toiletries

Clothes for both hot and cold weather (including a coat and strong shoes)

Hat and sunscreen

Diary, reading book and pencil case

*Please note that a hat and warm coat are essential

 

Optional:

Bathers and beach towel

Camera but not as part of a phone

Sunglasses

Pillow

Torch

– Students should not bring mobile phones, money, electronic games, sweets, food, food utensils, or any items which could be considered illegal or dangerous e.g. pocket knives and matches.

Gear should be in a soft bag and be able to be carried by the student. Do not tie sleeping bag to bags.

Please pass over all medications and completed consent form (if required) to Steve NO LATER THAN Friday October 2nd. THIS IS MOST IMPORTANT. Also, in case of being stuck on Maria due to bad weather at least one extra days medication must be provided.

All prescribed medication must include pharmacy labelled box or note from doctor. All Prescribed Medication must be identifiable, in its original foil tray or bottle. This is a safety issue. This is required to comply with government regulations and without such information we will be unable to include your child on the camp.

Important

Please note that we have 2 buses requiring access to the school so please do not park on the school bus zone or in front of the school when dropping off or picking up. On return to school we will need students to help unpack the bus before they leave. We are hoping to get all the grade 1-7 bags on the first bus but if this is not achievable then you may need to wait for the second bus to return.

The camp fee is $120 and should be paid in the week before the camp. The morning of departure is too busy for the receipting of camp fees. Please fill out and return the slip below.

Please sign and return to school as soon as possible.
