Ski & Snowboard Trip February 2018 Application

Dear Parent/Carer,

SKI & SNOWBOARD TRIP FEBRUARY 2018

This is an application for the next SKI TRIP to ITALY in February (half term).  We’re using TM SKI & TRAVEL a company who offer a good price and operate a system of Guides/Instructors ensuring a maximum 6 hours per day, supervision on the slopes. The total price of the trip is £873 which includes 30 hours of teaching on the slopes as well as:

  1. Return transport from school by luxury coach and Ferry or Tunnel crossing
  2. Lift pass and 6 full days of skiing with qualified Instructors/Guides
  3. Hire of boots, sticks and skis or Boards
  4. A full evening entertainment program
  5. Full board and accommodation
  6. Alpine Ski/Board Tests and Awards
  7. Snow Guarantee
  8. Comprehensive Medical insurance (with a £30 excess)

Not included: Jacket; Sallopettes; Helmet; Sunglasses; Gloves; Wristguards (Boarders only).

We will try to bring in a Clothing Hire company in the November Parents evening so if you are unsure about what to get you have both staff and supplier to help you, although you are free to get clothing from anywhere. Helmets are compulsory. If pupils don’t have their own then they can be hired at the resort for 10 Euros. Pupils can opt to Snowboard, but there is a supplement of £15.

Behaviour is a big part of risk assessment for trips. They are hazardous if pupils don’t cooperate. If we have evidence that a pupil would be a danger to themselves or others, they don’t go.  For a borderline pupil, then we may only accept them following an interview with parents, where conditions will be set. If a pupil’s behaviour deteriorates after paying, they could then be barred from going.

To include your child on this trip, a deposit of £200.00 is required.  Payments should be made via our on-line system, ParentPay. Those using cheques – please make payable to Dereham Neatherd High School and take to the collection area (outside Business 1) on a Thursday break time only.

Due to the total amount payable, we will take money in instalments over the next few months. A payment schedule will follow. When the deposit and any more money has been sent to the company, it is non-refundable but medical insurance covers pupils from the first payment. The final payment date will be 19th October 2017, and once you decide you want your child to go, you are agreeing to this final payment date. 

Any concerns or queries, please contact me at the above address.

Mr. N. Miller
Yours sincerely,

(Head of P.E.)
