The current changes in legislation now make it necessary to write cheques directly to the travel agency organizing each outing.  Please read carefully the “Make Cheques Payable to” portion of the coupon.  You will still send your cheque and coupon to the co-ordinator, whose information is included for each event.  The co-ordinator will then send all cheques to the travel agency involved before the event.  Please note that the cut-off date is now up to six weeks before each event.  Cancellations will only be possible before that date. 


For coupons see our current Beyond The Blackboard or E-News
