As many of you are aware we have been running a variety of successful residential trips for many years. Last year we had a hugely successful trip to Windmill Hill PGL Activity Centre taking over 150 Year 3 and 4 children. We would like to offer the Year 3 and 4 children the opportunity to once again take part in this trip. The Centre is near Hastings in East Sussex and is a great location to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities.
The children will have the chance to try out a variety of activities such as rafting, archery, team building and many more. Although I would recommend the children try each activity, they are NOT compulsory and the children are not forced to do anything they don’t want to. There is also a huge range of food available to choose from at meal times.
The skills identified for children to be effective learners include being organised, sociable, independent and having the ability to work in a team, all of which are enhanced by such residential trips. These centres are booked well in advance and in order to secure our place we must collect deposits as soon as possible.
The total cost of the weekend which includes coach travel, full board and all the activities with provision of all equipment will be £195. Whilst we realise this is a lot of money, we feel it is an experience of a lifetime and represents good value for this sort of trip. The payments would need to be collected in three amounts over the next six months.
If you would like to come and hear more about this trip and ask any questions before you make a decision, we will be holding a meeting in the lower Junior hall on Wednesday 23rd October 2019 at 6.00pm.
If you would like your child to go on the residential trip a non-refundable deposit of £65 will be required to secure your child’s place. Deposits will need to be made through the school’s on-line payment system, SIMs Pay and will be made available to purchase from Thursday 24th October 2019 through to Wednesday 4th December 2019. Please also complete the slip below and return after the deposit has been paid. Instalment dates will be notified nearer the time. Please note instalments will be non-refundable once payment has been received by PGL.
All payment should be made through our on-line payment system SIMs Pay. If you have not yet registered, please see a member of the office staff to obtain an invitation code to sign up to the system.
