Year 9 Marae Trip Thursday 18 November
Good morning. I am contacting you this morning to let you know that we have had 3 parents withdraw their permission for their daughters to attend the trip to Hongoeka Marae tomorrow for reasons concerning the recent earthquake. Hongoeka Marae is at Karehana Bay in Plimmerton, a 30 minute drive north of Wellington
At present the trip is going ahead and many of you have already given your permission for your daughter to attend. If you are having second thoughts and feel that your daughter should not go with us or have not yet responded to the letter asking for permission, please let us know immediately by replying to this letter or by calling or texting me on 0220881731, including your daughters name in the text/email.
We can then make a decision re continuing with the trip or not.
