Please note that all school fees (including options, extracurricular activities), along with the fee for the trip, must be paid in full by April 30, 2019 in order for your child to attend the trip.

FUNDRAISING

The school does not organize fundraising options for this trip. Should a parent, or group of parents, wish to form a committee to fundraise, Mrs. Balloch, on behalf of the school, will support this committee in any way possible. A date for a fundraising meeting will be set at the next parent meeting on Wednesday September 26, 2018 at 7:00pm in the library.

NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT

$200 (NON-REFUNDABLE) DUE FRIDAY OCTOBER 19, 2018 @ 3:30 PM SHARP.

Please note that this deposit is non-refundable as it is used to secure your child a flight and hotel room. Should your child not be able to partake in the trip after the deposit has been paid, the deposit will not be refunded for any circumstance, as the monies will be put towards cancellation of your child’s flights, excursions, pre-paid meals, etc.

All school fees must be paid in full at time of deposit in order to secure a spot on the trip! Students with outstanding fees on the deposit due date will not be permitted to attend

Deposits submitted after the aforementioned date and time will not be accepted, thus a spot will not be made for your child on the trip.

With your $200 non-refundable deposit, you will be asked to identify which payment option and method (listed below) you will be using to pay for the balance of the trip. At the time of deposit, you and your child will also enter into a contract with the school stating that your child will remain in good behavioral standing with the school,

and your account is in good financial standing with the school, from the date of deposit until the time of departure.
