Dear Parents, students, sponsors and supporters of the 2015 France battlefields Tour,
Last weekend, Paris suffered a series of attacks where more than one hundred people tragically lost their lives.
We always put the safety of our students as our number one priority, and as a result of these events, we have determined to cancel the 2015 France Battle Fields tour scheduled for 20th November to 9th December.
This decision has not been taken lightly.
We have considered the recent events; travel information provided by the Commonwealth Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade; the Smart Traveller website; gained information and support from the Department of Education and the duty of care that is owed to our staff and students, and determined that this is the most appropriate decision to be made at this point in time.
We understand that this will be very disappointing for the staff and students who were scheduled to participate in this trip.
We are currently working with TRAVELBOUND to determine appropriate next steps, including determining whether a refund / reimbursement will be available.
We will provide you with further information as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact David Mills on 57841200
