High School: Residentials 2018

On Friday, all parents of students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 should have received a letter about this year’s High School Residentials,  taking place in the third week of next term - the week beginning Monday 22nd January.

This year’s Residentials are as follows:

Year 7 will be visiting iCAMP in Kanchanaburi (http://www.icampthailand.com/) where activities taking place will include kayaking, archery, orienteering, a day at Sarasi Camp, a trip to the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre and much more. This is a new Residential, and we are all very excited about this new opportunity for our Year 7 students.

Year 8 will be visiting Pranburi, staying at the Milford Paradise Resort. The trip will be organised by Wild Planet, who have nearly 20 years’ experience in running school trips and activities taking place will include scuba diving, climbing and abseiling, a beach clean, a trek in Sam Roi Yot National Park and much more. This is a repeat of last year’s very successful new Year 8 Residential.

Year 9 will be visiting Kanchanaburi, staying at the Pung Waan Resort. The visit will be organised by CDR Adventure, a company based in Kanchanaburi with a great deal of experience of school trips and activities taking place will include a low ropes adventure course, kayaking on the River Kwai, hiking, raft building, archery, a navigation race and a trip to Hellfire Pass. This is a repeat of last year’s very successful new Year 9 Residential.

Year 10 will be flying to Chiang Mai, camping for three nights in Muang Khong at  and staying at The Royal Ping Garden and Resort for the final evening. Like the Year 8 Residential, the visit will be organized by Wild Planet, a company with a great deal of experience of school trips, with activities taking place including camping, survival skills, team building, trekking, caving, rock climbing/abseiling, geocaching and a service activity in a local village. This is a repeat of last year’s very successful Year 10 Residential.

Year 12 will be flying to Hanoi, in Vietnam, and then staying at Mai Chau Asia Ecolodge. The visit will be organized by Buffalo Tours and activities taking place will include trekking, cooking, embroidery, weaving, cycling and rafting, as well as service work in a local school. This is another new Residential, and we are all very excited about this new opportunity for our Year 12 students.

Residential week is a very important part of the High School curriculum, with each of the programmes offering a range of opportunities for personal and social development. I visited the Year 8, 9 and 10 Residentials last year. These are all great Residentials and we are continuing to work with the external providers to make them even better this year, as well as planning two very exciting new Residentials for Years 7 and 12.

Parents should complete and return the reply slips to their son/daughter’s Tutor by Thursday this week, and will be invoiced for these trips with the Term 2 fees. As all but a few teachers will be accompanying residential visits that week, there will be no in-school provision and all students are expected to attend their scheduled trip. If there are exceptional circumstances that mean that your son/daughter is unable to attend, please contact their Head of Year before Thursday.
