Excursions create the opportunity for teachers to use refreshingly different approaches to learning. The staff consider these excursions as being an essential part of the child’s learning program.
Teachers are aware of the expense of such excursions and always try to keep the cost as low as possible. If there are difficulties with the cost of excursions parents are invited to discuss this with either their child’s teacher or a Principal. Children are not permitted to attend an excursion without payment.
All students are required to wear clearly visible school uniform (including hats from September to May), on all excursions. Jackets and ‘hoodies’ must not be worn over their school tops.
A permission note to take part in excursions is sent home. It must be signed and returned to the school, with payment included (unless other arrangements have been made with the school), before the child is allowed to participate.
