20-03-17 St. Johns 0 comment

Dear Parents,

 

Please find enclosed a copy of the final itinerary for the New York. We are scheduled to leave the school at 6am via coach in order to arrive at Heathrow Airport with the necessary time to check in all students and staff. 

 

 Important information to note:

  1. Please send your child’s passport to school by Friday 24th March 2017.
  2. Ensure that your child arrives at school on Saturday 25th March 2017 at 5.45am.
  3. Please park in the teacher’s parking area if you wish to stay and see your child leave, as it would ensure easy access to the coach collecting the group.

Personal items:

  1. Face cloth, shampoo, soap, etc, (the hotel provides towels, but you are free to bring your own if you wish).
  2. A warm coat, scarf, gloves, hat (woolly/furry) as the weather can quickly become quite cold.
  3. Warm jumpers. Layering your clothes always helps with the cold, so ensure that you take jumpers/long sleeve tops.
  4. Pair of comfortable walking shoes as we will be walking around New York in order to enjoy the full experience this beautiful city.
  5. An adapter to charge or use any electrical items (mobile phones, dryers etc.)
  6. Do not over pack; your child has a limit of 23kg for the check in suitcase.
  7. Ensure that carry on suitcases are the correct size if your child wishes to take a bag onto the plane. Any bags that are oversized will have to be checked in and are chargeable.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.

Yours sincerely,

 

Mr. Tardios
