UP AND COMING EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Most students are going to be attending some form of extra curricular activity in the coming weeks. Please make sure you have paid for these as soon as possible or contacted the office to let us know how you will pay. As you will be aware the government DOES NOT fund at high enough levels to cover all the costs of extra curricular activities. However as a school we do budget and fund raise to subsidise most excursions and trips. This does mean we ask parents for a contribution towards the activities. We are aware that this is an expensive time of year for everyone right on the back of Christmas and summer holidaying, however we love to see all students taking part, so if you are having trouble making ends meet please contact us at school so we can make arrangements. Quite often we have families contributing extra to help out other families, there are always options.
