After Easter we have three trips to Belgium; the Junior Choir Trip and two Battlefields Trips to Ypres. I am writing to you as a parent who has a child on one of these trips, in the light of the events in Belgium yesterday.
We are taking advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office regarding visits to Belgium and this will take some time to obtain. Also, our tour company are considering the situation, which will take a few days.
Once we have received all this advice, we will write to families with a decision about these trips after the Easter holidays.
Please be assured that the safety of our students is our first priority and I feel that making a considered decision once we have more information is the correct response.
Mr R Shadbolt
