Not long until we travel to Madrid and the final preparations are in place!
Just a few little reminders and confirmation of details.
We are flying to Madrid on Monday 20th May. Children will need to be in school by 8am ready to travel. We are flying from Luton airport and the coach transfer departs from Broad Heath School. Children should have a packed lunch with them but please remember that drinks cannot be taken through the airport security into the departure lounge.
Children are travelling with hand luggage only. Please ensure that their case is the correct size and that any liquids are in an easily accessible clear bag and do not exceed 100ml. These will need to be removed from the suitcase when we pass through airport security. Anything exceeding 100ml or not contained in a clear bag will be disposed of by the airport staff. If you need to pack any liquids over 100ml, please hand these into the main office by Friday 17th May. Children will need a small backpack for the day, this should be able to be packed away into the cabin bag, if required.
There is no weight limit on cabin bags, but please be mindful that the children will need to travel around the airport with their bag. If you have any questions or concerns about this then please let me know.
Whilst we are in Madrid, the weather will be very warm, please pack shorts and t-shirts with a cardigan or hoodie for the evening. Please also ensure that sensible shoes are packed as there will be a lot of walking. You may also need to pack a light rain jacket, please keep an eye on the weather forecast.
The hotel will provide one towel per child, you may wish to also pack a small individual hand towel.
We should arrive back to Broad Heath at approximately 2.30pm on Friday 24th May. If there are any delays or we are making good time and are due to arrive back earlier than this then information will be posted on the blog.
Please bring all passports and EHIC cards to the main office by Friday 17th May. These will be stored in the school safe.
Children may bring some spending money. Please remember that children will be responsible for their own money and belongings, other than their passports.
All of the key information is on the information sheet that you have all received a copy of but if you have any further questions, please pop and see me or call the main office.
