Plan for clothing that keeps you warm and dry. NO COTTON: Once cotton gets wet it stays wet, wool is a great alternative. Please try to ensure your base layer (layer closest to your skin) is made of synthetic fibers (polyester, rayon, nylon, polypro) or something that “WICKS AWAY” sweat

No need to go out and buy the “proper gear”: look in your closet first and read the labels on the clothing. Thrift /second hand stores are great places to purchase clothing if necessary

It is advisable to wear several layers of light clothing rather than one or two heavy articles

Pack all personal items into one pack or suitcase

Central Senior’s School trip is a peanut & nut free excursion, please do not bring products containing peanuts and/or nuts.

NOTE: We understand students may bring electronic devices such as phones, ipods or tablets.  The school will not be responsible for lost or stolen items.
