Final Camp Newsletter

Whanau Turanga Tui Ridge Camp Dear Parents/Caregivers, Not long to go now until our camp at Tui Ridge. Breakfast and lunch menus are being finalised and the excitement is growing! Here is the information you will need in the lead-up till next Monday, the 25th February: Food Each group is working with a budget of $10 per person to cover breakfast and lunch for the three days, i.e. 4 people in the group = $40 (home baking does not have to be included in this amount). The children will bring home the menu and shopping list this week. They need to plan, with your help, when they will meet up to shop for the items on their list; ready to bring to school in one chilly bin per group on Monday morning. Please do your best to fit in one chilly, if it’s not possible, another sturdy box is fine. We are encouraging them to think broadly when planning the menu, and to think carefully about which foods will be safe till Friday, e.g., powdered or longlife milk would be a more sensible choi
