Educational excursions are an integral part of each class program.  Parents are made fully aware of excursion details, and no pupil may be included without the written consent of his/her parent or guardian. Excursion costs to cover transport and accommodation where applicable, must be met by participating pupils. Pupils who do not travel with their class on excursion are required to attend school, where they will be accommodated in other classes. Payment plans can be arranged through the Principal if required
