Letter issued 20 February

We are all getting very excited about the French Trip! We are looking into getting red hoodies for the France trip and the quote comes to £24 each. Please fill in the attached slip if your child is interested in getting one.

Please remember that the total amount must be paid by Friday 29th March 2019. It can be paid to the school office at registration or at break time or online at www.eastlothian.gov.uk/payforit. The last two dates if you are paying by instalments are:

  • Friday 22nd February 2019: £50 and Friday 29th March 2019: £100


Due to the uncertainty of Brexit please ensure your child’s passport has at least 6 months left on the passport from the date of arrival. Please also be aware that the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) might not be valid but we would still prefer that one is brought on the trip. To apply: https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/healthcare-abroad/apply-for-a-free-ehic-european-health-insurance-card/. We would be grateful if you could make sure that any dietary requirements and/or medical history is up-to date. Finally, please complete your details on the attached parental consent form in case medical treatment is required in France and submit to a member of ML department.

The travel company has informed us that children must bring the following on the trip:

  • Sleeping bag and pillow
  • Towel
  • Sun protection and hat/cap
  • Mosquito protection
  • Water bottle
  • Torch (could use your phone)
  • Food en–route

Please note that there will be a parents evening on Wednesday 15 May 2019 at 5.30pm in the Library and a representative from Manor Adventure will be present too. The ML website is also updated with all the information handed to pupils about the French Trip if anything is misplaced.
