Welcome to GO South West

Arrivals

Please arrive at Blundell’s School, at 3pm on the 5th of August.

There are lots of parking spaces in the school grounds for those coming by car. Once at the venue our team will direct you to Registration and where to find your group. Parents are welcome to stay for a cup of tea or coffee and use the facilities before returning home.

We will register you on arrival, then show you your boarding house and introduce you to your team.  We will have a few games, refreshments and then a short tour of the School where we are staying.

Departures

On the Friday we would love to welcome all parents/carers for join us for a response meeting at 11am where we will recap what has happened over the week.

Afterwards young people will be provided with a picnic lunch, and we would love it if you could join us (please bring along a packed lunch)!

photos

Each year we hope to take some general photos or video during the week that may be used for publicity, uploaded on our website or shared on social media sites.  We hope to upload any photos on the public ‘Contagious’ Facebook group, so we encourage everyone to join our group. It is almost impossible to control the use of social media by young people at Contagious.

If you have particular concerns about social media, photographs or publicity, please inform the Contagious Team by emailing admin@contagious.org.uk.
