Farmoor Watersports – Summer Holiday Courses 2019
March 2019Dear Parents,
Owing to the popularity of this activity, arrangements have again been made this year for two summer holiday sailing/windsurfing courses to run back to back at Farmoor Reservoir during the first two full weeks of the school holidays in July.
For the first time these arrangements will also include primary year 3.
Farmoor Reservoir is one of the best inland waters in the South of England and home of the Oxford Sail Training Trust, a recognised Royal Yachting Association Training Centre.
To help you with your planning for the summer, here are the details of what has been arranged:
a 5 day sailing/windsurfing course from Monday, 8 th July – Friday, 12 th July, 2019 anda 5 day sailing/windsurfing course from Monday, 15 th July – Friday, 19 th July, 2019 from 10.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m.
Cost approx. £200 per week
As of this moment the Centre can offer us 66 places for sailors but only 18 spaces for windsurfers during the first week. Secondaries can apply for sailing and windsurfing; primaries for sailing only.
It is worth mentioning that you can enrol for either one or both courses and that your chances of getting a space are higher during the second week.
We have also negotiated with the Holiday club to be able to offer wraparound care at school and transport to and from the reservoir. This will cost an extra £100 per week (a total of £300 per week). You will be able to use childcare vouchers to pay if you opt for this. This option is subject to a minimum of 20 children each week. (NB The school cannot accept childcare vouchers for the sailing only, according to government guidelines).
If you would like more information and an application form please complete the form below not later than Friday, 29th March, 2019. An application form will then be sent out to you in due course.
I look forward to hearing from you.Hanne Starling - After School Activities Co-ordinator - email@example.com
