Final arrangements for the Residential weekend
Pupils attending the residential weekend • Pupils are expected to be in school at the usual time on Friday morning. Pupils can attend Breakfast Club if they wish to do so
• Please will luggage be placed in the back of the Hall ready for departure later that morning
• The bus is expected to leave Pontygwaith Primary at 11.30 a.m. and we expect it any time after that. Parents wishing to wave their children goodbye can meet them at the school entrance at this time. You can bring luggage with you at this time if you wish.
Please do not park in front of the school lay by as the bus will need to use this space
• Pupils will be having an early school dinner and packed lunch before they leave.
Pupils remaining in school.
• Friday 30th March and Monday April 2nd will be normal days for pupils. Miss Bruce will expect all pupils who are not going on the residential trip to be in school for normal lessons. Any absences will be marked down as unauthorised unless supported by a medical certificate. There is a Golf Day experience for pupils on Monday at the Pentre Astroturf.
Additional information for the weekend.
We have decided that we do not wish to allow pupils to take mobile phones with them on the weekend. We will use our text2parents system to send messages to you at times during the weekend. We also have a list of your emergency contact numbers should we need to contact you. The contact number for the Abernant Hotel is listed in the handout I distributed to pupils earlier this term. These details will be posted on the school blog.
We would also ask pupils not to bring iPods, mp3 players or any other electronic devise such games machines as the staff cannot be held responsible for them and we would wish you to respect our request to avoid any
Please can we remember that we set a limit of £5.00 spending money for the weekend and that this needs to be in change.
As the weather will be very hot can I ask you to provide your child with a hat and sunscrean to avoid sunburn.
I hope that this clarifies some points for you and I am confident that the pupils will enjoy the experience.
