Normandy French Trip 2019
Dear Parent(s) / Carer(s)
French Trip Meeting – Tuesday 26th February – 6pm in the Site A Hall.
I am writing to inform you that there will be a French Trip meeting on Tuesday 26th February at 6pm. Please note that the date and location of this meeting have changed. I will explain the trip in more detail and give you precise timings, a kit list (which can be found at the bottom of this page) and an itinerary of planned activities.
In the meantime, a few reminders!
The exact dates of the trip are Sunday 10th to Saturday 16th March 2019.
Your child will need their own passport (please inform me immediately if your child has a non EU passport) which can be handed in at the meeting on February 26th and an EHIC card (European Health Insurance Card). It is vital that your child has this card as he/she will not be able to travel without this. This too can be handed in at the meeting.
You can apply for an EHIC free of charge:
By going to www.ehic.org.uk and applying directly online (only use this official website as other unofficial websites may charge)
By calling the automated service on 0300 3301356
They take about 7 days to arrive.
Please make sure your child has completed and handed in to me the medical form. Dietary and medical information needs to be sent in advance to the Chateau. All medication can be handed in at the meeting.
The final payment for the trip is outlined below. Please contact Ms Lloyd at student reception if you have any queries regarding this. Cheques should be made payable to Wigston Academy, with your child’s name and tutor group on the back and handed in to Ms Lloyd at student reception. Alternatively you can pay online under the Normandy trip.
Final payment of £140 by 30th January 2019
If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me at school.
