The 9th Battalion Dunblane Pals, will be deploying for service overseas at 2030 hours on Thurday 11th May.
The coaches will leave the school at 8.30 pm prompt, we cannot wait for stragglers as the coach drivers have set driving hours they must stick to by law, and we have to be in Dover for a set time in order to catch our ferry. Please try to be at school between 7.30pm and 8pm certainly no later than 8.00pm.
Several parents have opted to allow the daughter/son to carry their own money on this trip, and this is of course acceptable, however the school staff cannot be held responsible for any loss or excess spending early on in the trip.
Please note that although your child is covered under the authorities insurance scheme, this does not cover them for illness before or during the trip, and we recommend you take out personal single trip travel insurance. For those of you still to hand in EHICs please do so asap.
When packing kit for the trip, as previously intimated Wellingtons are important, but also please ensure your son/daughter packs a bath towel (and perhaps a hand towel) as these are not supplied by the hostel.
