YEAR 4-6 CAMPS

Here are the confirmed dates and costs for the upcoming Year 4-6 camps in November.

November 4-8 (Monday to Friday)

Who – Year 6

What – Outward Bound Camp

Cost – $4000

A presentation has already been given to the Year 6 parent body.  See previous post on my blog for a copy of the presentation.

 

November 6-8 (Wednesday-Friday)

Who – Year 4

What – Cheung Chau Camp (Bradbury Camp)

Cost – $590 (owing to government subsidy)

A presentation is being organised by the Year 4 teachers for the parents.  This will be held on Friday the 25th at 8.30am and will run for 30 minutes.  Please note that this presentation will also be put up on Planet Peak for you to download so please do not panic if you cannot make the meeting.  The meeting is in the morning as the feedback we get from a vast majority of the parents is that it is most convenient time to have a meeting is first thing before work starts.

 

November 11-13 (Monday-Wednesday)

Who – Year 5

What – Year 5 Camp – Hong Kong Scout Camp – Sai Kung (on the Island opposite the Hebe Haven Yacht Club)

Venue – Wong Sui Sang Leadership Training Institute (Scout Association of Hong Kong)

Cost – $2190.  We have managed to negotiate the price down from $2500 as previously listed on my blog.  We no longer receive the government subsidy for this camp as we have changed to a more challenging camp program run by the Scouts who, as an organisation, are not eligible for the subsidy.  The cost of this camp is in line with what other International Schools are charging for similar experiences.  This will be a challenging camp for the children and prepare them well for the Year 6 camp next year.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CHILDREN WILL REQUIRE A SLEEPING BAG AS THEY ARE SLEEPING IN TENTS BOTH NIGHTS!

A presentation for parents has been organised for the 29th of October starting at 8.30am.  Again a copy of the presentation will be made available to parents who are unable to attend the meeting.

More information will be sent out from the classroom teachers.
