P7 RESIDENTIAL TRIP - AMENDMENT TO DATE
I am writing to advise you that the date for the P7 residential trip in 2018, has been changed from 5th - 9th March to 26th February - 2nd March 2018.
The cost of the trip is unchanged at £281 per pupil, excluding transport cost. We will ask if the parent council (Friends of Drumlanrig) would be willing to cover the cost of transport again next year.
As previously advised, the deposit for the trip is due to be paid to the travel company by the end of April 2017 and the final payment by January 2018. This may seem like a long way away but starting payments early, you will be able to spread the cost. We would not wish for any child to miss out on the trip due to difficulties with finance, therefore, we would ask you to contact Mrs Gordon to discuss how we can help if this is an issue.
As discussed at the meeting, the deposit of £55 should be paid by Friday 1st April. However, if your child does not go on the trip for any reason, the deposit is not refundable.
Payment Arrangements - Deposit £55 per child due by 1st April 2017
Interim Payment £75 per child due 9th September 2017
Interim Payment £75 per child due 4th November 2017
Final Payment £76 per child due 16th
