Miss Parish - Can Sail Trip - NEW date!

Trip: Miss Parish - Monday 28th November 11:45 - 3:45pm
Parent Helps: Gareth Lewis, Jo Merrylees and Reade Wilson

Dear Parents

We are all looking forward to our CanSail trips around Lyttelton Harbour this term. Thanks for all the offers of parent help but unfortunately we can only take enough parents to meet the ratios.

The trip will take place from 12:30 -3:15pm

We will be travelling to and from Lyttelton by bus.

Students need to be at School at normal time in their sensible mufti. The homebase will be back at school by 3:45pm on these days. Please let me know if this is going to affect you.

You must wear sensible mufti to school. It is very important that you follow the gear list below and also read the safety guidelines given to us by the CanSail crew. It is important that you follow these as the CanSail staff have the right to refuse students onto the ship for inappropriate clothing and also behaviour.

  • Wind-proof AND water-proof clothing
  • Warm hat (woollen or fleece)
  • Sun hat (with a string attached if it is loose-fitting. Hats lost overboard will not be retrieved.)
  • Sun block
  • Socks
  • Closed-toe shoes, eg: sports shoes, sneakers, lace-up school shoes. (For safety reasons, NO jandals or other open-toe sandals.)
  • Long hair must be tied back.
  • Plastic drink bottle (please NO fizzy drink.)
  • Morning tea snack (please NO sweets, yoghurt or chocolate)
  • Any medication required (Asthma Inhaler)

Safety Notes
Food: each child should have an on-board snack and drink. NO fizzy drinks, sweets, yoghurt or chocolate, please. This snack should be kept in the child’s bag which will be retrieved from below decks at Snack Time. (Snack Time is time- and weather-dependent, at the skipper’s discretion)

Cameras: Children will be busy sailing the ship and will not have time to take photographs. We will have one or two cameras which are operated by the adults in your party and share the photos taken.

Hair: all long hair MUST be tied back securely. This is for safety to avoid entanglement with ship equipment, such as pulleys and ropes.

Jewellery: All jewellery should be removed, other than that worn for cultural or religious reasons. In this event, necklaces must be secured beneath high-necked clothing; rings, ear rings must be taped over. This is for safety to avoid entanglement with ship equipment, such as pulleys and ropes.

Phones/Electronic Games etc: Children are not permitted to use mobile phones, electronic games or other electronic items on board. These must be stored in the child’s/staff’s bag which will remain below decks other than at Snack Time.

Unfortunately we can not control the weather, so we have had to book an afternoon session.
