Our end of year picnic is going to be held on Friday, December 16.
This year we are keeping the picnic local and walking to Merri Park. Merri Park is located behind Northcote High School, on the corner of St Georges Road and Sumner Ave.
Merri Park is approximately a 1.6km walk along Merri Creek. All students will walk or ride to and from the picnic.
Departure time: Approximately 9.30am.
Return time to school: Approximately 1.30pm.
If you have completed the “Local Excursion” permission form there is no need to provide consent for this excursion. If you have not completed this form, please contact the office so that you can complete this form.
There is no cost for this excursion.
Students will need to bring their lunch and snack for the day. Please ensure your child has a water bottle, broad-brimmed hat, and sunscreen.
At this stage the weather is looking perfect. Around 25 degrees with light winds.
In the event of poor weather or extreme heat the picnic arrangements may be altered. This may include a shorter walk to a sheltered space along Merri Creek, or remaining at school for activities.
Assistance with walking with the students to and from the event would be greatly appreciated.
