Dear Brothers and Sisters,

A gentle reminder for all to bring their money and consent forms for job week camp on friday.

Reporting time for the camp on the 11th has changed to 8PM instead of 5 as previously stated. you have to settle your own dinner before attending the camp.

Report in your PT kit for the sec ones and activity tee with PE pants for sec 2s and above. this camp is very important for the funding of our unit, thus i strongly urge you all to attend this camp.

BTW the leaders will drop by your house to pick you up for the camp if you do not turn up without a valid reason.
