Year 12
CampDespite, emails, notices and Thursday's meeting I have only received 17 (out of a possible 41) camp forms. If forms are not in to me by Tuesday 15th (tomorrow) it is likely camp will be cancelled. Please come and see me if you have any worries or concerns regarding camp or payment. 

It is extremely important that you adhere carefully to deadlines from now on. The 'real world' is not going to accept 'I forgot' and meeting deadlines/checking email could literally be the difference between getting a job or accepted to uni and not being considered at all.

Students who have returned forms are:

Elisheva Venables
Kayla Paine
Brentyn stevenson
Kristopher Alvarado
Caleb Walker
Georgia Redfern-Hardisty
Weylin Aslanides
Emily Evans
Shannon jordan
Saki Matsumoto

Jasmine Armstrong
Shardae Noone
Kohine Taylor
Keenan Shine
Jess Barfoote
Jayden Jamieson

If you have returned your form but your name is not on the list, you need to see me ASAP-as it hasn't reached me.
