January 2014 - BHE Ski Trip Information
Dear Parent / Carer
We will be departing on Friday 14th of February 2014 at 16.30pm. your son/daughter will be allowed to leave school at 2.00pm on this day in order to go home and prepare / pack for the journey. Students must be back at the Academy for around 4pm in order to set off for a prompt departure at 16.30pm.
Due to new health and safety legislation, students must by law wear a ski helmet. To facilitate this we have resourced ski helmets which will be provided by Corby Business Academy at no cost. These helmets will fit all sizes due to additional foam pads allowing the helmet to adapt to every head.
If you have not already, please hand into school your son/daughters passport and (EHIC) card by Monday 3rd February 2014.
European Health Insurance card (EHIC) for the trip. This entitles them to medical treatment during their stay. Treatment is free or at a reduced cost with the card. The quickest and easiest way to obtain it is to apply online – see the official Department of Health website:
There is no charge for the card but a ‘Google’ search will first direct you to websites which do charge for their service. The main applicant must be 16 or over, therefore the parent or carer applies for the card, naming the child as a dependant.
Thank you for your co-operation.
