All Italian Explorers must attend a meeting on Thursday 20 February 2020 at break.  Information will be issued around spending money arrangements and room allocation requests.

A number if individuals have still to hand in paperwork, and others are behind in payment schedules.

Passport photos and the passport form if not yet returned must be handed in as a matter of priority so that our application can be made well in advance of time. These were due before the February Break.

The final balance of £75 is due on Friday 6 March 2020, taking the total payments to £550.  As always if there are difficulties making payments on time it is vital that contact is made with the school.  Our final invoice to the Tour Company is due to be paid at the end of the month.

There will be a parents' meeting held to share itinerary information and final arrangements once everything is confirmed.  Please look out for this information.

This is to let you all know that there will be a Paris Trip meeting on Thursday 19 March in T1.1 (Miss McBride's Room) at 5.30pm. If a parent or carer is unable to attend please ensure that someone will collect all essential information for you.

Please also ensure that a photocopy of your child's passport & EHIC card (still valid until the end of December 2020) are brought to the meeting. If you have no access to a photocopier or scanner/printer these documents can be photocopied at the meeting therefore please ensure they are brought along so this can be done ( If you son/daughter does not have a passport please ensure that the process of applying one is started ASAP).

Lastly, please be aware that the two final payment installments are fast approaching : 28 Feb & 22 March. Please can you ensure that these payment deadlines are adhered to as we are now in the process of paying important invoices.

Any issues with any of the above please contact Miss McBride or Miss Laudi ASAP.
