Cambodia tour, important dates coming up !

Dear parents and Cambodia Service Tour students

Time has come to get focused and ready!

As we draw closer to the date of departure, 10th of January, some important dates and events are going to be posted on this blog and it is important that we keep abreast of what is happening and what is required.

We are having a final meeting of all parents and students on the Wednesday 20th of November in the Community Room adjacent to the library on the Duncraig Campus, starting at 6pm. This meeting we cover all of the travel and departure details and will answer any questions you have about the forthcoming tour. We will also use this meeting to complete our online entry visas for Cambodia so please bring your student devise and a credit card for payment and we will complete this task as a group.  We must have ALL visas completed by this date.

The second date to keep in your diary is the evening of the 4th of December, as this will be a family Cambodian meal, most likely in the North Perth area. This will be our last meeting before departure on 10th January. Further details will be provided shortly.

Please keep in touch with the blog as this is the location where all tour information will be posted.

Passports & Fundraising

Dear Year 11s and parents,

I hope you all had a lovely holiday and have had a smooth start to Term 4 🙂

This is just a reminder for those who have not yet sent their passports through to either myself or Mr Biddle. Can you please send a scanned copy of your passport photo page through by the 25th of October.

The end of the year is rapidly approaching so make sure that you are chipping away at your fundraising totals – if you are stuck for ideas, please let us know and we will help you!

There will be a parent meeting later this term – date and time TBC. This meeting will cover Visas, Immunisations and any other questions you may have about preparing for the trip.

 

As always, if you have any questions, please let one of us know.

Enjoy your first week back!

Cultural & Language meetings

Dear Cambodia Tour members & parents,

I hope you all had a fun and restful break.

We have a busy term coming up for Cambodia Tour with two meetings to look forward to! Our first meeting is our Cultural meeting this Wednesday the 31st and it will be at Duncraig, starting at 4pm. Carramar students, Mrs Kirby will take you there and back on the coaster so please meet her behind the Science Building (near Makaria) at 3:30.

The following meeting will on the 15th of August, 4pm at Carramar. We are very lucky to have a guest speaker joining us to teach us some Khmer words and phrases! If you would like to get ahead of the game, you can download a free app ‘Simply Learn Khmer’ (the one with the elephant).

A reminder that these meetings are not optional, so we look forward to seeing you all there!

 

Can I also ask that you send me through a scan of your passport (on the photo page) so that I can pass them onto RAW Impact to get our flights organised (my email: eleanor.glacken@ststephens.wa.edu.au). If your passport expires before the end of July 2020, you will need to organise to renew your passport. If this is you, here is some more information: https://www.passports.gov.au/passports-explained/passport-renewal

Unless you are renewing your passports, can I please have these scans by the 16th of August.

 

Best wishes and looking forward to catching up with you all on Wednesday!

Ms Glacken, Mrs Kirby and Mr Biddle.
