GRADE 5-7 SKIING
Dear Parents of Holy Family Grade 5, 6 and 7 Students:
We are planning our annual Holy Family School Downhill Ski Trip to Table Mountain. This year it will take place on Friday, March 6th. Students will NOT be back in time to catch the 3:30 school buses. All students are to make arrangements for their own transportation from the school at 5:00 p.m.
If, for some reason, your child will not be travelling to and/or from the hill on the bus, please inform your child’s teacher, in writing, by Friday,February 28. Please note that a fee has been added to each price to cover a portion of the busing and G.S.T. A breakdown of prices is listed below. The annual ski trip is part of our regular physical education program which means all students are expected to attend.
As we did last year; we are requiring each student, skiing or snowboarding, to wear a helmet approved for recreation snow sports. It is an important piece of equipment to help maintain the safety of our students. (Please see reverse). Students may bring a lunch from home or buy lunch there. Please note: energy drinks are not allowed and will be confiscated. Students should not bring valuables with them as neither the ski hill nor the school will be held responsible.
. The appropriate payment is due by Friday February 28 /2020. If payment is an issue, please contact Mrs.Sarenco or Mrs. Spence at the office. Post-dated cheques can be made out for March 30th There will be a limited number of complimentary ski passes for parents wishing to chaperone. The passes will cover the cost of Ski Rentals and a lift ticket. These will be distributed on a first-come first-serve basis. Adult lessons will have to be paid for in advance to the school at a cost of $10.00 + GST. Parents interested and able to join us please contact Mrs. Sarenco, on or before March 6th. We are also in need of a parent (with a truck) to transport equipment out to the hill. Please inform the school (306-445-2360) if you are able to help with this.
