2015 Trip Information


Two ‘pre-departure’ days have been organised to help the students prepare for the OSLE experience. These days will be held next year  Wednesday, May 6th and Wednesday 20th May. These sessions will be held at our school in the Gym.  Activities include practical tasks such as learning how to wash their own t-shirts and pack their own suitcases etc.
