YEAR 7 and YEAR 8 CAMP
This year, in Term 4, both Year 7 and Year 8 students will go an Outdoor Education Experience.
The Year 7 students will be going to Finlay Park. Their three-day camp (two nights) will go from Tuesday 3rd December – Thursday 5th December 2019.
The Year 8 students will be going to Ngatuhoa Lodge. Their four-day camp (three nights) will go from Monday 2nd – 5th December.
These camps will provide students with physical challenge while still retaining a reasonable level of comfort for students, parents and staff.
We have budgeted a cost of $120 for Year 8 and $180 for Year 7 students. This includes all meals, accommodation and activities.
Payment for these camps will need to be finalised before our departure. If the cost of this camp is prohibitive then please contact your child’s dean. For those students that are unable to attend camp an alternative programme will be put in place at school.
We are unable to run these camps without parent support. We are seeking parent interest to enable us to continue with our planning and to complete police vetting before the end of Term 3. If you would like to be considered for parent help, please complete the form on the link below.
The commitment will involve attending the entire duration of each camp and providing transport.
Year 8 students will depart Aquinas College by 9.00am on Monday 2nd Dec and return to school at 3.00pm on Thursday 5th.
Year 7 students will be leaving at 8.30am on Tuesday 3rd December and returning by 3.00pm on Thursday 5th December.
Completing this form only an indication of your desire to be involved. If we have more applicants than necessary, we will have to select parents.
