The tour operator would like to be sure that the list we have given them regarding food restrictions (allergies or otherwise) is complete, as it will be difficult to get a vegetarian meal at some of the restaurants unless we have pre-booked. If you have any dietary restrictions, please email Ms. Chen or Mr. Fleming as soon as possible, and definitely before we return from spring break.
We are meeting at the airport on Wednesday evening (April 10th) in the Graham Clarke Atrium at 8 pm. Please be prompt. It is important that you not attempt to check yourself in on-line or at the desk at the airport. We are checking in as a group once everyone has arrived. An itinerary will be distributed to you over the next couple days. Please check the packing list as well as the Air Canada restrictions for checked and carry on luggage.

We have a new t-shirt/hoodie provider. The link is at the top of the page. There are several options on the website including, pullover hoodies, zip hoodies, and t-shirts. New this year is the option to personalize your hoodie with your name embroidered on one of the sleeves. As in the past, if you are travelling with the music department you must have at least a navy, PG Music t-shirt. Feel free to purchase extra clothing in different colours, but the official tour colour is navy. Please note that the company needs to have received your order by the time we go on spring break if we hope to have the shirts before tour.
With our Loon Lake retreat rapidly approaching, Wednesday next week, here are some important reminders:
You should arrive at school on Wednesday at the regular time (8:30 am) with all of your things and proceed to the auditorium. You should leave all of your things on stage and sit in the audience. You will be given specific instructions about loading. We plan to depart Point Grey at 9:30 am. Everyone received a comprehensive packing list but it is available here on the website. As you are packing please keep in mind that we are spending a lot of time outside, regardless of the weather, and you should pack accordingly. Ultimately you are responsible for ensuring that your instrument, music, luggage, and sleeping bag make it on the bus.
We plan on arriving back at Point Grey around 3 pm on Friday. It is usually a good idea to plan on phoning your parents as we are getting close to the school. You will be dismissed only after the buses have been unloaded and all the gear has been returned to the band room.
