As part of the Grade 4 Inquiry Program, and in preparation for future camping excursions, the students are invited to a one night sleepover at St. Peters.
Students will need to bring their overnight gear to school in the morning and during the day they will be involved in an excursion to Narana, Geelong and the Geelong Botanical Garden Precinct including the Eastern Beach Area. The excursion will support our Identity on exploring the history of Australia. Upon their arrival back at school, students will remain on the premises, participating in community building activities. They will share a meal together, organise their own belongings for the night, sleep in the Grade 3 & 6 area (girls and boys housed separately) and have breakfast together before going home. Food will be supplied (unless otherwise organised with parents due to allergies), therefore students are not to bring ANY food with them, except their normal school lunch for Friday. As this sleepover is about building your child’s levels of independence, we encourage you to have them pack their own bag in preparation.
The sleepover part of the day will be covered by school staff to allow the children to develop their independence. The Parents and Friends have generously donated money towards this sleepover to cover the cost of dinner, supper and breakfast.

As we are on an excursion, we would very much appreciate the assistance of parents on the day so that we can keep our groups to a workable size. If you would like to help and have a valid “Working With Children Check” certification, which has been registered at the school office, and have been through the St Peter’s Volunteer Interview process, please indicate below and your child’s teacher will contact you. Due to the responsibility involved in supervising a small group of children, you will not be able to bring along pre schoolers.
Parents assisting with this excursion will be required to attend an excursion briefing session on Thursday 23rd August at 3.15pm in the 4B classroom.
Please note parents helpers are not required upon arrival back at school.
