End of Year Program – Activities Week 2019

During the last week of Term 4, all Year 7, 8 and 9 students are invited to participate in our special End of Year Activities Program. This program provides opportunities for students to engage in a variety of learning experiences that vary from the regular day-to-day timetable. On each of the 4 days, students will have the opportunity to participate in either a full day or two half day activities.

Important Dates & Information:  

Booking your End of Year Activities:  This year all activity choices for students in Years 7-9 will be booked through the ‘Try Booking’ website.  Parents will need to go onto the site and book the relevant activities they wish their child to attend for each day.  Payment will also be required at this time.  For those activities with maximum nos., once the activity reaches its limit, then you will need to choose another activity.  No refunds will be available once bookings are confirmed.

CSEF Fund:  For those families who have CSEF funds available on their school account, you can book your events as ‘CSEF’ ticket.  Please check your balance with the Administration staff prior to booking your ‘CSEF’ tickets.  If there are insufficient funds on your school account, then your ticket will be refunded and you may miss your place in an activity if it is already full.

Parent/Guardian Permission to attend event:

By booking the activity on ‘Try Booking’, the parent/guardian is confirming to the College that they give permission for their child to attend the activity and gives authority to the Teachers in Charge of the activity, where it is impracticable to communicate with them, to their child receiving such medical or surgical treatment as may be deemed necessary.  They give the assurance of the expectation that their son/daughter will behave in an appropriate manner and to carry out any instructions given by the Teachers in Charge, and agree to meet any expenses involved with any misbehaviour.

Uniform

Students are required to wear full school uniform and bring their sports uniform to school if they are participating in the sports activities.

Costs

Where possible we have tried to keep costs to a minimum, however all external activities require costs for bus transport to and from venues, and some require charges for activities. There are also no-cost options at school to ensure everyone can participate.    

Payments

All payments will be made through ‘Try Booking’ website.  https://www.trybooking.com/BHBZT

Final Date for Booking and Payment:

All payments must be completed by Wed , 11 December  2019.

Refunds/Cancellations

Once your place has been confirmed and you have completed consent and payment, there will be strictly No Refunds or Alterations permitted if students change their mind or don’t attend on the day of the activity for any reason. We have an obligation to pay the full amount of the booking to external providers.

Attendance

Attendance on these days is not compulsory, however it is necessary to indicate whether your student will be at school or not. You can do so by returning the Non-Attendance slip located at the end of this document. Click here for the Return Slip

Event Information

All information including starting and finishing times, required clothing or safety equipment, etc. will be listed below. Please check this information carefully.

Lunch & Snacks

Students are responsible for bringing their own lunch and snacks to school each day of the activities. The College Canteen WILL NOT be operating. Students on excursions may be able to purchase food or drink from the venues but do so at their own expense. It is definitely okay to bring food with you.

Please consider your decision carefully before booking the activities.
