Chewing gum / Food supplies  - The Centre provides all food and there is a tuck shop.

Any medicine   (including painkillers like paracetamol).  Inform your teacher if you need to bring medicines and they will make arrangements.

Mobile phones should not be brought, they are unnecessary, disruptive, unsafe and could hinder an emergency (Dol-y-Moch staff carry mobile phones).  The Centre has a strict code of use for mobile phones and reserves the right to confiscate phones and return them to parents.

 

F.         SPENDING MONEY  

Please ensure all purses / wallets have a contact name inside.

Children will need to bring some money (SMALL CHANGE ONLY PLEASE) if they wish to purchase sweets or souvenirs from the evening tuck shop.  Sweets and drinks are all priced at 60p per item.  A souvenir order form will be sent to your group leader. 

 

G.         TELEPHONE

There is one public telephone at the Centre for pupils’ use but it can be difficult for them to get time or a turn to use it.  Please don’t worry if you don’t hear from them - no news is good news.  We also advise you against phoning them as it can be difficult to get hold of them as they are kept busy.  In emergency parents should telephone the Office number. Assume that no news is good news if you do not hear from your child - we will contact you if anything is wrong.
