To meet the DET Student to Teacher ratio a small number of Parents are required to attend camps but numbers are limited.  You will be required to have a current Working with Children Card (volunteer applications available on line and processed at the Post Office at no charge). Parent helpers are chosen for their skills and experience.  Dads are very welcome to apply, please write a note to your child’s teacher if you would like to attend.  Some camps have maximum numbers so please ensure you pay the deposit promptly to guarantee your child’s place.  Every student will receive a camp passport that is used to keep track of payments and is notification to us that your child is attending camp.  A non-refundable deposit of $80 is required to confirm your child’s place by the end of Term 1 (Term2 for Gr 6). You can pay your camp in instalments. Final camp payment is required three weeks prior to departure.  You will receive notification of what your child will need to bring to camp, medical forms and consent forms four to six weeks prior to camp departure, these are also available on the website.  Copies of the School Camp Policy are available on request at the office. If you require further information or payment assistance please contact the Office or the Principal, 57841221.
