    Year 7/8 Trip To London
    by Mr A Stewart - Monday, 29 September 2014, 2:41 PM

    The first trip is now full and a list is up outside VAPA. However, we have 16 students who have paid the deposit and didn't get on the trip so if we get 40 students we may be able to organise another trip.

    We can't book for any less, so if you are interested return your form with deposit by Friday, if we don't get enough by Friday, deposits will be returned early next week.
