Grade 5 Camp

by sanjaylalwani on October 30, 2014

Dear Grade 5 parents,

School camp is a great opportunity for children to learn in a different situation away from their daily home comforts. Being empowered to problem solve and be independent is a key component of being a lifelong learner and fits well with our Grade 5 expectations and mission.

In preparation for the Grade 5 camp from the 19th – 21st of November, here are a few things that need to be completed. Our camp provider this year is Outdoor Education Asia.  Information regarding the programme that we will be completing can be found here.

All students will need to do the following:

1) Register online.  Please put in your homeroom teachers name as the teacher in charge.

2) Return the camp permission form,  fill it in and return it to school by Monday the 10th of November.

3) Bring a cheque in the amount of $2150 HKD. All cheques should be made out to the Canadian International School of Hong Kong Limited and be returned to school by 10th November

4) Look at the Packing List for camp and ensure that you have the required items. Practice packing the items independently.Please ensure to include a sleeping bag.

5)If you were unable to make it to the camp info night or want to review the presentation again please find it here.

If you have any questions or queries please email :mikehansen@cdnis.edu.hk.

Regards

Mike Hansen
