Many students from last year have stated how enjoyable the trip was and I am sure your son or daughter will return home with the same happy memories.
I wanted to take the opportunity to let you know of a change in our departure time due to increased security at Pudong airport as a result of Sunday’s incident. We now ask students to arrive at the secondary campus at 11:45am on Sunday 19 June, in order to leave swiftly at 12pm. Students have all been told the member of staff they need to approach and hand their passport and/or medication to upon arrival to school. We are booked on flight FM9369 to Guilin.
Whilst away on the trip, staff can be contacted in the case of an emergency. The numbers they can be reached on will be given to your son or daughter to store in their telephones and they will also receive a wristband with this information on. For your own reference, these numbers are:
Ms Mitchell (Group 1): 13917642404
Mr Lewis (Group 2): 18321099094
BISS Puxi +86 (0)21 5226 3211
I would also like to remind you that we welcome your children back to BISS Puxi on Friday 24 June 2016 on flight FM9378 from Shanghai Pudong Airport (PVG). We expect to be back at the Secondary campus by 23:30 but please check on the progress of the flight before leaving to collect them.
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you to check the packing list this weekend to allow some time to get the final essentials for the trip. If you no longer have the information booklet, an electronic version can be found here:
I am very much looking forward to joining the students on their adventure to Yangshuo. I am sure they will have a wonderful experience and will come back with memories they will treasure.
