THURS APRIL 16TH – SUN APRIL 19TH 2015
-­‐ GRADE 8 CONCERT BAND
-­‐ GRADE 9 CONCERT BAND
-­‐ TONIC! CHOIR! (GRADE 8-10 CONCERT CHOIR) HOLY CROSS REGIONAL SECONDARY SCHOOL TRIP CONSENT FORM As you are no doubt aware, hundreds of students from the Holy Cross Bands & choirs have participated in previous Sunpeaks festivals. We are planning on taking the grade 8 concert band, grade 9 concert band, and Tonic! (grade8-­‐
10) concert choir this year. The students will be traveling by bus to Sunpeaks, leaving from Holy Cross in the early morning on Thurs Apr 16th – Sun Apr 19th . While in Kamloops we will be staying at the Hampton Inn and while in Sunpeaks we will be staying at the Sunpeaks Grand Hotel. *Pending space availability which the travel company is currently looking into. The main purpose of the trip is for the students to perform at the Sunpeaks Music Festival and participate in its associated activities including workshops, and performances. A dance and festival concert with professional musicians and featured groups will also be part of the festival. Optional activities will be offered closer to the time of the festival. Other fees may be required and other consent forms will also be required. They will be provided once the optional activities have been decided upon. Although students will be provided with lists of suggested and required items to bring on the trip, it will be each individual student’s responsibility to bring whatever he or she needs on the trip. While in Sunpeaks, the students will be supervised by at least 7 adult chaperones which include teachers and parents. If you are interested in being a chaperone then please let Mr Cabralda know. There is some cost involved with being a chaperone. Supervision will consist of an adult presence in the hotel any time that any students are there, supervision of the group during all transfers, and an adult presence in any of the locations where students are taken to enjoy an activity. For example, although adult supervisors will be present when the students are shopping in the village, the students will be free to stay in groups and enjoy the sights and shops without an adult being with them at all times. It is to be understood that the school’s expectations regarding student behaviour will apply during this field trip, and that the parent / guardian signing below assumes the responsibility for any costs caused by the student’s failure to abide by these expectations, including sending the student home. *A copy of the expectations and rules of conduct will be reviewed and distributed closer to the date of departure.* Accidents can be the result of the nature of any activity and can occur with or without any fault on either the part of the student, or the school board or its employees or agents, or the facility where the activity is taking place. By allowing your son / daughter to participate in this activity, you are accepting the risk of an accident occurring, and agree that this activity, as described above, is suitable for your child. The school does not provide any accidental death, disability, dismemberment, or medical expenses insurance on behalf of students. DRAFT ITINERARY Thursday April 16 SURREY | KAMLOOPS (D)
