New York October 2016
Dear parent / guardian
I have arranged a trip for students to visit New York during October Half term in 2016. The trip will depart from Newcastle Airport on Thursday 20th October 2016 at 9.00am and return at 11am on Monday 24th October.
Whilst in New York pupils will not only have the opportunity to visit some of the cities iconic attractions such as the Empire State Building, Times Square and the Statue of Liberty but will also be visiting a Broadway show. There is also opportunity for the group to explore in Central Park and we will also fit in some shopping time. The cost of the trip will be £975 and includes the following;
- Return flights to and from New York from Newcastle
- Airport Transfers
- Three night’s hotel accommodation with breakfast in the centre of Manhattan,
- visits to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Empire State building and the 911 Memorial
- Tickets to a broadway show (exact show TBC)
- All meals.
- US Visa waiver (ESTA)
If you would like your child to be involved in the trip I would request that a non-refundable deposit is paid to secure your child’s place. This will be £100 and payable by 11th March to Cardinal Hume School. Flexible payment will be available during the remainder of the school year with the final balance due 12 weeks before departure. It is essential that your child has a valid passport for travel in October. In the unlikely event that we do not meet the minimum number of pupils to travel deposits will be returned.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the trip do not hesitate to contact me at school. Thank you in advance for your support of what promises to be an excellent visit and opportunity for our pupils. Once deposits have been received you will be provided with further instructions regarding future payments which can be made by ParentPay once places have been confirmed.
