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.
The senior tour is just under one month away and the itinerary has arrived. Officially the itinerary is still in draft form, just in case we need to make any small changes, but essentially all of our activities are there. Once we return from spring break, we will provide you with a packing list and details about where we are meeting at YVR.
You can find the itinerary here:PG 2019 Montreal & Ottawa Itinerary Edition
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.
