Parent Meeting 14 August

posted 16 Aug 2018, 17:43 by Lizzie Greenstreet
Thanks to those who were able to make it on Tuesday night.

Our next and last meeting is Tuesday September 18th 7pm.  It is vital that everyone attend this meeting as we will hand out information booklets for parents and go over final details about departure and arrival.

  1. Communication during the trip will be through the blog site:  Follow the link and make a comment on the first post to make sure you can.  If you have any problems, reply to this email and we will fix this before the trip.
  2. If there are any special meal requirements we need to know now e.g vegetarian/nut allergies. Airlines will not take any responsibility for traces of nuts in food. If anyone has a nut allergy they need to take their own food.
  3. Spending money: Our travel agent is happy to do a bulk money exchange for spending money, this will reduce fees and hopefully get a good rate.  If you would like to do this, please give your $250 to the office by the 14th September.
  4. Shirts have been ordered.  These will be purchased by the school so that they can be used for future Japan trips.  Each student will have two shirts to take and they will be worn on the two days at school as well as the welcome ceremony.
  5. Please remember to purchase small gifts for the homestay families.  This could be as simple as a bag of lollies for the kids and a NZ themed tea towel for the parents.
  6. Airpoints – please let me know if ayou have Air NZ airpoints numbers. If not, it is free to join at
