Dear Parents

Paintball Event

I would like to offer pupils in Year 9 the opportunity to participate in a paint ball event on the afternoon of Friday 10th July at the Battle Zone paintball centre near Yarm.  The cost of this activity will be £22 and includes protective clothing, a mask and 300 paint balls.  Additional paint balls can be purchased on the day at a cost of £6 for 100 paint balls.  Pupils will be transported to and from the venue using the school mini-buses.  Pupils will leave school at approximately 11:20, have a packed lunch, and return at 15:30, in time to collect their belongings and clear out the cloakrooms.  Pupils should come to school wearing their uniform and bring a change of appropriate old clothes and trainers to wear for the activity.

A nominated first aider will be with the group.  A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leaders.  The trip will be subject to the conditions as set out in the Parent Contract, and will be covered by the school’s insurance policy.  Please ensure if your child suffers from asthma or severe allergic reactions their inhaler/medication/epipen is in school, if they do not have them, they will be unable to go on the trip.

Pupils are not allowed to bring any personal items such as personal stereos, mobile phones or cameras.  We endeavour to take photographs on as many school trips as possible, please visit our website, facebook and twitter pages to view a selection of photographs.

I would be grateful if you could complete the attached consent/medical form accompanied by a cheque for £22 made payable to Red House School by Friday 19th June.

Yours faithfully

Mr P Heaton
