This is a happy time in which we enjoy each other’s company, have lots of fun and learn many different things. The accommodation is very comfortable and the activities are happily anticipated by those who have been before. Cheryl and Carron will be looking after the students. All food and drink is supplied. Nicholas is our cook and his meals are heartily enjoyed by all. Children should not bring any sweets, drinks, money, phones or electronic games.
Students will need to bring:
Change of clothing and underwear for 2 days
Toilet essentials (towel, soap, toothbrush, hair brush etc.)
Cheryl should be notified of any medical requirements or special needs before the camp, no later than by end of Monday please.
The cost of the camp is $120 and should be paid in advance.

Departments’ of Education.
In an island state, with a national record for drowning last summer, we consider this program of
overwhelming importance to the futures of our students.
Please make sure your child receives these lessons as they are pre – paid by the school.
