Manchester Christmas Markets Trip 2015

 

Dear Parent

The Core Curriculum Department at UTC Bolton, in conjunction with the Culture Studies curriculum is organising a European Culture Trip on Wednesday 16th December 2015.

The trip will begin with a Continental Breakfast (croissants and hot chocolate) in the Bistro at 9:00am. We will then walk to Bolton Railway Station, from whence we will travel by train into Manchester to visit a number of the Manchester European Christmas Markets. We will return to school before 4:20pm, in order to enable our students to travel home at the end of the school day in the usual way.

School uniform must be worn for this activity.

The trip is open to all students in Y10. The aim of this trip is to enable our students to experience various European cultures, to practice their Modern Foreign Language skills and to buy those all important gifts before Christmas!

The cost of the trip will be £10, which will include the cost of the Continental Breakfast, the return train fare to Manchester, insurance and any study materials for use on the day. In addition, students will need to bring enough money for their own purchases, and to buy their own lunch at the Markets.

If you would like your son/daughter to be included on this trip, please complete and return the attached consent form, together with the correct money (£10 cash), by Friday 13th November 2015 to Reception, who will then issue you with a receipt.

I would like to remind you that students on this trip will be representing UTC Bolton, and should therefore behave in an appropriate way at all times. The highest standards of behaviour will be expected. They will be fully supervised, but there will inevitably be times when students will be in smaller groups, when the supervision will be within a given area. At these times, there will be an established meeting point, where staff can be found in the event of an emergency.

In accordance with school rules and regulations I reserve the right to withdraw your child from taking part in the trip as a result of behaviour issues in school.

Yours faithfully

 

Karen R Whiffen (Mrs)

Head of Core Curriculum
