Hello again everyone
The word from John Dunphy is that we are still going tomorrow morning with a 4:30am departure.
Please arrive by 4am and go directly to the buses. Do not get on the bus until you are checked in. The sooner everyone is there, the sooner we can leave ahead of the weather.
Thanks everyone, and see you in a few hours!
The grade 9 trip organizing team
With the weather forecast, and potential for bridge closure John Dunphy has advised that we need to change our departure time again.
We are asking students to arrive at Queen Charlotte at 4:00am for a departure by 4:30am.
Students are to go directly to their bus, not into the school. They will have their luggage loaded onto the bus and get onto the bus right away.
Once everybody is on board, we will depart as a group and travel as a convoy.
Safety is priority and this will help us get ahead of the storm.
Thank you for your understanding, and we will ask that students share this information though social media with friends so that everybody is aware.
A further update will be sent out at 8pm, however, we do not anticipate a further change at this time.
See you soon!
