School Day Out - Skiing or Skating Thursday 2nd September 2021

On Thursday 2nd September 2021 we are planning a whole school trip. Your child has the option to either go skiing to Porters or ice skating to Alpine Ice, Christchurch. The risk management planning and online links for completion of forms are attached to this email and will also be available on the school website. Please complete the online forms by no later than Monday 2nd August 2021. Please note it is one online form per person.

The cost for skiing is $50 per student and includes rentals, lessons and a ski pass. This will be the same for advanced skiers who do not need lessons as they will get a full mountain pass instead of a beginner one. If you have a season pass the cost will be $30. The cost for the parents is the same but excluding lesson. If you wish for your child to attend the skiing trip but are unable to transport them, we will hopefully be able to arrange transport with another parent, there will be an additional cost of $20 to cover transport costs, payable by Monday 2nd August. This year we may be limited to numbers of children attending, so at present we will take the first 50 completed forms and payment. If skiing is cancelled due to weather conditions you can attend ice skating but will have to transport your child/ren.

The costs for ice skating will be $20 to cover the cost of the coach and skate hire. We will be all travelling by coach to Alpine Ice, Christchurch. Session times are 10.15 am to 12.15 pm. Children must bring a helmet, wear adequate warm clothing including warm trousers (no jeans), gloves, hats, two pairs of warm socks, not ankle socks, warm jacket and a change of clothes. Parents are welcome to come along but will be required to make your own travel arrangements. If parents  wish to skate, the cost is $9.50 per person, by Monday 2nd August, after this date the cost is $16 paid directly to Alpine Ice on the day. We will be leaving school at approx 9am and returning to school at around 1.15 and returning to class.
