Dear Parents/Carers,

Have Your Say competition, Colne Community School, Brightlingsea, Colchester.

I am pleased to share a reminder that your son/daughter will be representing Thomas Gainsborough School by taking part in the MFL Have Your Say competition at The Colne Community School, Brightlingsea, next Tuesday, 13th March 2018.

Students will be travelling by minibus and we will meet at main reception at the front of school at 3.15pm and will depart straight away. We anticipate returning to Car Park A (main school reception) at Thomas Gainsborough School at approximately 7.15pm, however if there is any change to this time then students will be able to contact you. Students are required to wear uniform and it is advised that they bring a non-fizzy drink and a snack, as well as a mobile phone in order to contact home should we experience any delays.

This is an educational visit and the school expects students to behave in a responsible manner at all times and accept staff instructions without question. We ask that you re-enforce the requirement for exemplary behaviour before your son/daughter takes part in this visit.

Please return the attached Parental Consent form by Monday 12th March.  Should you require any further details please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please congratulate your youngster once again on gaining a place in this competition and we very much look forward to the visit.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs H Frid

Trust Lead Practitioner
