Due to COVID restrictions over the past 2 years, we have been unable to offer students the opportunity to experience off site excursions. For this reason, school funding will cover the cost of transport which will bring the cost down significantly. The actual cost for the excursion is $33.00. With the school supplementing the cost of transport, the cost per student will be $5.00.

Students will be required to wear their full sports uniform and bring a packed morning tea, lunch, hat and a water bottle. A bottle of water and a snack bag will be provided to students on arrival at the Marsupial Park as an additional snack.

This excursion was planned in 2021 but had to be cancelled due to COVID restrictions. As a result, students may have paid for this excursion last year and could be in credit. Please contact the office prior to making a payment.

Please sign the note attached and make payment of $5.00 per student (if owing) by Term 3, Week 8, Wednesday, 7th September, 2022.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at the school on 6785 1599.
