The bag will also be useful for day trips in Barcelona. Clothing Wear something that will be comfortable. It is quite a long journey and you might want go to sleep. Jogging bottoms, sweatshirts and comfy jeans are ideal. A small pillow or cushtie can be a good idea. On the last trip the sun was quite bright and pupils found it beneficial to wear sunglasses. Food There is almost a day of travel, so make sure your child has a packed lunch. Avoid sticky and messy food – in particular keep away from fizzy drinks and things that go off quickly. Entertainment Bring something to read and perhaps a pack of cards or small game. Electrical equipment, IPods, mobile phones etc and cameras are good but, please note, these are your responsibility. Medicines If you take medicines, inhalers etc, make sure that you have enough for the whole stay and that you have sufficient with you on the coach. We are unable to give out paracetmol/ travel sickness tablets, so it would be a good idea to take some tablets should you perhaps suffer from a headache or sickness during any part of the trip. Due to some people’s allergic reactions to plasters, it would be better to take your own. Sun cream and a hat are essential as the weather is likely to be very warm (hopefully!). NB. Should your child have to take medicines on a regular basis, please ensure you have informed the staff in writing, if you have not already done so. Toiletries Take something to freshen up with during the journey, for example wet wipes. Generally for the whole journey. Several pairs of jeans, jogging bottoms, trousers etc. A couple of pairs of shoes / trainers. Underwear for the week!! Tops and jumpers Smarter clothes for the evening. Light coat/ jacket/ waterproof. Other essentials Sketch pad. Pencil, coloured pencils. Pen, rubber, glue stick. Camera. Adapter/plug. PASSPORT, MONEY AND THE 4 ENVELOPES. We have agreed certain strategies for the supervision of money during the trip. Money should be divided by parents into FIVE amounts (4 envelopes) *Money for the outward journey (sterling/Euros) to be carried by your son/daughter. *4 sealed envelopes clearly marked Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with your child’s name and amount. (Remember the visit to FC Barcelona is on Wednesday so if any pupils wish to buy shirts more needs to be included in this envelope). These will be collected on the morning of departure and members of staff will then be responsible for issuing this at the appropriate times. Remember everything – (all meals, apart from on the journey) – is included other than your child’s personal spending money!!
