Just a reminder that the year 0-2 activity day and camp is next Thursday and Friday (29th and 30th of November).

Overview:

Thursday day trip: All children arrive at school (from 8:30am) in their uniform (including sunhat and fleece). We will travel by bus, to Wellington City, returning to school for 3pm. Activities include: visits to Te Papa, the City Gallery and exploring some of our Wellington parks. All students go home/to Kelly Club as usual at 3pm.

Thursday overnight: Those students staying over will return to school at 5pm (in mufti) with their gear. We will have a shared dinner altogether and then sleep overnight in the hub.

Friday: Breakfast and pack up the hub. The children who did not stay overnight can arrive back at school from 8:30am. From 9am there will be a rotation day at school for everyone. All children can wear mufti for the day. Morning tea and lunch is provided for children that stayed overnight.

Gear for the day trip:
School uniform, school sun hat, morning tea and lunch, water bottle, good walking shoes, raincoat (if it is likely to rain). Note that we will be having lots of snacks during the day, so smaller items in your child’s lunchbox will be helpful.

Gear for overnight:
Mufti clothes for Friday, toiletries, PJ’s, bed roll, pillow, sleeping bag, any medication, soft toy if required.

If your child is at Kelly Club on the Thursday morning/afternoon, they can bring their camp gear to school in the morning. There will be space in the hubs for this.

Medication:
Any medication needs to be handed directly to Gemma (Te Rito Hub) or Andrea (Koru Hub) on the morning of the camp in clearly named bag or container. Please include any instructions for administering medication in the bag. The morning of camp tends to be very busy and it can be hard to have in depth conversations ‘on the run’. As such, emailing any important information about your child prior to the morning of camp would be very useful.

We hope your child is looking forward to the day trip and/or camp. Please get in touch if you have any questions to [email protected]z. A contact mobile number for the camp will be: 0211404628

Kind regards

Gemma, Alexis, Amaria, Andrea, Katie and Sonali
