; Payment

Financing the trip can be problematic, particularly if you have quite a mixed income area. It helps to have the payment in advance so deposits can be paid. Make sure all payment is covered by receipts so your treasurer doesn't pull out their hair! Payment could be arranged in instalments in order to reduce the burden for some families and there are trust funds available in some areas for economically disadvantaged families. Your local Council Education Dept should know about these and may be able to provide a list. Ensuring confidentiality around all of this is also necessary.
