Summer 2019 Weekends Programme
Dear Students and Parents, In addition to the wide variety of boarding trips and activities that take place through the Houses each weekend, we are pleased to offer an extensive range of creative and cultural events designed to complement your classroom experience with some wider educational and social opportunities. A number of the events have a cost element taking into account, where applicable, the price of an entry ticket or fee, transport, and a packed meal. As a matter of course, we advise your parents/guardians of any trip or activity that costs £8 and over. These require their approval beforehand. Once your parents’/guardians’ approval has been given, you committed to the trip or activity and you the cost will normally still have to be paid, even if you decide you do not wish to go. Places on many of the trips are limited so ask your parents to submit the WuFoo form as soon as possible to ensure the best chance of securing a place for you. https://roedean.wufoo.com/forms/weekend-programme-summer-2019/ If you have any questions regarding the programme please email us on weekends@ roedean.co.uk Kind regards, Ms H Boobis, Assistant Head: Co-Curricular and Scholarships
