X23 DofE Bronze Expedition Kit Check:

All students in X23 will need to bring in the items on their expedition kit list on Friday 5th April (1 week prior to expedition).

Expedition supervisors will do a thorough check to make sure students have the appropriate clothing, footwear etc.

This is an important part of the expedition process. Students that don’t have the correct kit could be at risk of not going on the expedition.

Kit lists are available on the XP DofE website or from the office.

Thanks

X23: School dinner or pack up Friday 12th April?

A polite reminder to let crew leaders know if students are needing a school dinner or a pack up for lunch on the 12th April when we will return to school from the Bronze practice expedition.

If students normally bring in a packed lunch this would need to be sent into school on the Friday morning and handed into the office for your child to collect.

If this is not possible then you will need to order them a school lunch before the 27th March. Lunches cost £2.50 and will be added to your parent pay account.

Please make sure crew leaders are informed whether your child is having a packed lunch or needs a school lunch before the 27th March!!

Any problems please let me know.

Thanks

Kate

X23 Sleeping bag liners for DofE expeditions:

We will be going on the practice expedition in 3 weeks time!

Please remember that students need to bring their own sleeping bag liner on expedition which was added to the mandatory kit list.

If you are wanting to borrow one from XP please email me before the 29th March so I have time to get them ready.

Thanks

X21: Gold DofE Welcome Booklets

I am currently in the process of finalising plans for us to offer the Gold DofE Award Level.

X21 students that are wanting to do their GOLD DofE Award can now purchase their welcome booklets. (Students must be a minimum of 16 years old).

Welcome Booklets cost £29 each which will be charged through your parent pay account. After the 1st of April the cost goes up to £31.

Booklets can then be collected from the school office and the Gold level will be added to the participants existing eDofE account.

When students have complete their Gold Award at XP we will happily reimburse this amount to your parent pay account.

If you have any questions about the Gold award at XP please email me, however further information will be posted shortly.

Thanks
