Benmore 22/23

Dear P6 Parents and Carers

As I hope you are aware, when in P7, our learners have the opportunity to participate in a residential experience to Benmore Outdoor Centre.   This is always a fantastic time spent enjoying outdoor activities in beautiful surroundings.   Please check out www.experienceoutdoors.org.uk for some further information.

Our allocated dates for session 2022 / 2023 have now been confirmed and we will be heading to Benmore earlier than we have in the past : Mon 5th Sept to Fri 9th Sept 2022!

This will be a great chance for P7 to come together as a year group early in the school year and I am sure it will have real benefits.  Over the next few days I will be speaking with P6 and sharing with them what the week involves.

The cost of the visit will be in the region of £360 – travel by coach, all activities, specialised equipment, food and accommodation.   I do appreciate that this is a considerable sum of money and, as always, will aim to ensure that no child misses out because of financial reasons.  We currently have space at Benmore available for all our P6s but need to confirm numbers by the end of April.  To this end a non refundable deposit of £100 is due now to secure a place for your child.  This can be paid through Parentpay.   The remaining balance can be paid in instalments over the next few months.   If you require financial help please get in touch immediately as we will be able to help.   Please either phone to speak to Mrs Boath or email direct to Rebecca.boath@trinity-pri.edin.sch.uk.  

If you have any questions do not hesitate to get in touch.

Best wishes

Jacqueline Scott
