Year 10 Camps 2019

Year 10 Camps run in the second to last week of Term Four (Monday 25 November - Friday 29 November 2019). Year 10 students have been issued camp selection letters. These letters must be returned by Friday 28 June. Camps are an important part of the curriculum and are usually the highlight of our Year 10 students’ year. These camps range in price and must be paid in full before the end of Term Three. Many families take advantage of the automatic payment system to pay in advance for these camps. If you would like an automatic payment form, please contact the school office on 06 356 4817.
