Parent information night - Date TBA
The parent information night will be held in our school hall. We will provide important camp information on the night and encourage you to attend. It will also be an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have. A representative from our camp providers, Bigfoot Adventures, will also be present to answer any questions.

Parent helpers
One of the key factors to the success of our camps is parent help. The camp is a fun, educational and rewarding week for students, parents and teachers. Camping in New Zealand’s great outdoors provides a unique experience that few other activities can rival. We require at least 40 helpers across the two camps. If you are able to come on camp, please complete the online helpers form by 15 February 2019 and we will get in touch with you.

Camp gear/equipment list
All students will need to bring items as listed on the gear/equipment list which is available here.

Please complete a medical and personal information form for your child as soon as possible. The information requested is vital and a form must be completed for each child attending the camp by Friday, 15 February 2019. The form can be accessed here: Camp Medical & Personal information form.
