ACTIVITY DAYS | ACTIVITY DAYS | ACTIVITY DAYS

Activity days are an opportunity for pupils to try something new. Last year we had a massive range of activities available and the pupils had a great time. This year we once again have a variety of different activities for the pupils to experience. This booklet lists all the activities, their prices and the number of places available. All you need to do at the moment is look through the booklet and choose the activities your son or daughter would like to do. Then, they will need to login to the learning hub and choose their activities. This will be live at 9:00am on Monday 16th June (instructions are on the back of this leaflet). Once we have the lists of pupils they will get a letter from the coordinator of the activities they have chosen, any specific information and also how much (if anything) they need to pay. Regards Ivan Langton Activity Days Coordinator
