    Just a straw poll as I'm proper fummin about something!

    If you had a child in Year 6 (age 10-11), would you be willing to send them on a school trip to London? It would include travelling down by train, staying in a Youth Hostel for two nights and visiting popular tourist attractions by Tube.

    I know they can`t legally charge you but how much of a d"donation" are they leaning on your for?

    If the bairn wanted to go I would be fine with it. I wadnt talk them into it if they were so so but having some independence does them good in my opinion. No doubt there would be plenty rules about keeping us up to date etc from Mum mind.
    Mind those days are long gone for me:lol:

    Assuming there was plenty of adult supervision aye why not.

    What I was fuming about was when my son came home about 5 years ago and announced he needed over £3K to go Africa. Ridiculous amount of cash to find and felt like we were paying through the nose (well for a freebie for the teachers).

    He still went but I thought it was a piss take.

  14. No issue here.

    When I was year 7 we did a trip to Eurodisney/Paris. The couple of days in Paris we were left to our own devices. The only issues were the Ninja stars and porn we bought from "lookie lookie" men.

    I assume there would be more supervision these days.
