If we hit travel delays, we will call-text to parents to inform you that we will be late arriving back at school.


On the Friday, the children will need to bring their luggage to the studio.  They will need a rucksack to keep with them all day and in it should be a packed lunch, re-fillable drinking water bottle and any pocket money you are sending. Depending on the weather, the children will also need a waterproof coat or sunhat/suncream in the rucksack. Please hand medicines (with name and instructions) directly to Mrs Parker and Ms Fiolaki on arrival at school.  They will ask you how the medicine must be administered and will record all the information.  They will be found in the studio or the school hall.


T-shirts have been ordered for our trip and will be given out to the children on Thursday. The children will need to wear this T-shirt on Friday morning as this will help us spot them on the ferry. They will also be asked to wear it for our return journey for the same reason. 



We have been provisionally booked into the following activities while at the centre:


· Survivor - Find out if you have what it takes to survive and learn some skills to help you keep warm and dry when all you have is what you can find.

· Aeroball - a cross between trampolining, basketball and volleyball – it’s an exhilarating, high-energy sport.

· Abseiling - this exhilarating activity allows you to scale down the side of purpose built towers leaving you with a great sense of achievement!

· Climbing – how far up the wall will you climb?

· Team Games - a series of games to develop social skills and team work

· Zip Wire – Travelling at high speed, maybe even through a forest or over a lake, suspended and harnessed from an overhead cable isn't something forgotten easily!

· Problem Solving Test your brain and outwit your team mates solving complex puzzles and tasks. Which team will win against the clock?

· Fencing This Olympic sport is both physically and mentally demanding. It will help you develop good hand to eye co-ordination and lightening quick reflexes.

· Sports and team games Working in small teams, you will need to solve puzzles, make decisions and communicate with each other in order to complete the task.

· Beach/coastal walk - opportunity to see some of the amazing sights in the natural environment close to the centres.


The fun doesn’t stop there! We also have three fun-packed evenings of entertainment organised, including wacky races, a quiz show and ambush! We hope you will agree that this is a thrill-packed set of activities which everyone should find challenging and enjoyable.
