Parents’ Briefing for Iceland Trip

Dear Parent/Carer,


With less than six weeks away from our visit to Iceland, there are a few very important final details I would like to draw to your attention.

Firstly, as mentioned in a previous letter, it is important we meet before we leave in October to discuss final arrangements and give you the opportunity to ask any questions. Therefore, you are cordially invited to an information evening on Monday 3rd October. The meeting will take place at Neatherd High School, in the school canteen, beginning at 6:30pm. I would be extremly grateful if you could indicate on the reply slip enclosed whether you will be able to make the meeting or not. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please can your son/daughter see Mr Stafford at school after 3rd October to receive the necessary details.

Secondly, also enclosed is the parental consent form that needs to be completed in full, signed and returned to the Payments Collection Office as soon as possible and no later than Thursday 6th October along with your child’s passport and valid EHIC card.  Without all of these items your child will not be allowed to attend the trip so your urgent return would be appreciated.

Finally, there is also an opportunity for your son/daughter to order a hooded top, specifically for the visit. The top will cost £17.50, which includes an embroidered flag of Iceland, together with ‘Iceland 2016’ on the front and your child’s name or nickname on the reverse. All tops will be blue in colour, enabling all members from the group to be clearly identifiable. It would be nice if all members of the party are able to purchase the top for that reason. Please refer to the chart on the reply slip enclosed for sizes.

Payments should be made via our on-line system, ParentPay.  When placing your order please ensure that the size of S / M / L is specified along with what nickname is required on the back of the hoodie.  This field must be completed before confirming your order.  For those choosing not to use the ParentPay system you should make cheques payable to Dereham Neatherd High School and take to the payment collection area (outside Business 1) with the order slip attached during Thursday morning break (11.10am-11.25am) Please note this is the only day we can receive cheque payment and order Payments need to be received by Wednesday 28th September.

If you have any other queries, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at the school.

Yours sincerely,

Mr T Stafford
