Due to a conflict of venues, we have made the decision to relocate the Drum for a Cause event. It will now be held on the Carramar Campus Common. Arrangements are being made to transport students to Carramar for the event. We understand that this may be an inconvenience to some, however this decision was not taken lightly.
In addition we have been able to extend the time that the Drummers will be performing. They will now start at 6pm.
It is a great night of entertainment as can be seen in the video below.
Welcome back to school after a couple of weeks holiday. We hope that you had a restful and enjoyable time.
There is 8 days to go until our first fundraising night – the Drum for a Cause evening. Hopefully you have been busy promoting the event and selling tickets to family and friends. It is a really enjoyable night and I am sure that everyone will have a great time. Remember that all the tickets that are sold by students go to their individual fundraising allocation so push hard over the next week!!
The afternoon will begin with a presentation to the students on the history of South Africa from 4 – 5pm. We will then begin setting up the tables, chairs and bbqs for the evening.
If you have any queries or need more tickets, please see your Tour Leader.
One of our main fundraising activities the African Drumming For a Cause event is being held on Wednesday the 17th of October in the Quad of the Duncraig Campus. The evening will consist of a South African style braii and traditional drumming by the Akwaaba Drumming group. It has been an enjoyable evening in the past where you can try your hand at drumming.
Students have been allocated tickets to sell for the event. It is important to remember that ticket sales contribute directly to each individual’s personal fundraising targets. We have encouraged each student to sell a minimum of 10 tickets, however the more the better.
Parent Info Evening Summary
For those who were unable to attend the recent Parent Info evening or those that wanted a summary of the info that was presented, the link below contains information that was discussed. Importantly, families should be discussing and arranging passports, copies of birth certificates and vaccinations. If you have further queries please discuss with one of your tour leaders
Anaconda Sale (thanks to those who have alerted me to this)
As discussed at our parent evenings, students will need 2 duffle bags for the trip. Currently Anaconda have a sale until the end of the weekend. The “club” price is almost 50% off and there is no cost to join.
I have attached a link to the bag that many students had last year but this in ways means that it is the only one avaialble. I would recommend the 140L bags as the best size.
If you are unable to take advantage of this sale, don’t be too worried as they offer this a couple of times a year.
