ANNUAL MCM SKI TRIP 

Year 7, Year 8, Shell, Remove & Lower Sixth Japan Ski Trip 

29th March to 6th April 2024

We are delighted to inform you that we have planned the MCM ski trip, to take place at the beginning of the Easter holiday. We have chosen to return to Yuzawa with the opportunity to experience the combination of clement ski conditions and the vibrant culture.

This trip is not compulsory, and pupils are under no obligation to participate. All pupils are welcome to attend, even those who have never skied before, the quality of instruction is excellent.

We have used last year’s experience and, despite the volatility in the currency market and airline ticketing, we believe we have an accurate estimate.   Again, the cost with the most fluctuation is the airline ticket which we will only be able to secure once we have your confirmations.  We are proposing the approximate cost of the trip will be MYR12,200.

All accommodation, flights, meals, transfers, lift pass, boot, helmet and ski hire, full insurance, as well as four hours of ski lessons each day are included in the price. 

Should visas be required for any pupil for Japan or Singapore, these must be arranged separately by families at their own cost. Support documentation will be provided by MCM, where required.

Register for the trip

National Online Safety (NOS) App

“What Parents and Carers Need to Know about X”

The social media network formerly known as Twitter has undergone numerous alterations since its change of ownership and rebranding as X – and many of these recent developments have proved controversial. With any user now simply able to pay a fee for account verification, for example, the once-reliable ‘blue tick’ system has become largely meaningless.

It’s just one of several changes that have set the social media giant on what many consider a concerning path in online safety terms. 

This week’s guide provides a run-down of the most significant tweaks made to X; their potential safeguarding implications; and how to help ensure young people minimise the risks while they continue to use the service.
