In the event of cancellation due to weather, a message will be posted on the school’s Facebook site and on the school twitter feed. If you are in doubt about the weather, check the post before you leave home, no post means the trip is on.
Unless students have a season pass, every student will be invoiced $80, the cost of transport, ski or snowboard hire, helmet hire, and lesson. Lessons are part of the school package and must be taken by all students irrespective of ability and experience with the exception of season pass holders.
As this is a curriculum-related expense, the cost of the trip will be placed on your son's school account at the start of July.
