  16. 16. CASH & OTHER TID BITS  Students who took $300 in most cases came home with change  Some meals need to be purchased but is cheap  Mobile phones- way too expensive, think about buying phone cards there- bills returning home can be a huge shock, parents can call hotels at night or morning, kids can call from hotel reception to home and pay  clothing to be appropriate- nothing skimpy, no short shorts, revealing clothes etc, mindful of culture and Islam  computer access very limited if at all

WHERE TO FROM HERE  consent forms  $300 deposit  communication via email or a blog  DET approval of excursion at each stage  students behaviour at school prior to trip  parents to fill in same paperwork for every traveller (even if it is repetitive) to meet requirements  relax we will look after your kiddies!!!!!!
