Quest Week, Sign Up Procedure Year 9-12

Quest Week 2017

Sign Up Procedure

Dear Students and Parents Year 9-Year 12,

Please find below the sequence of events for the sign-up procedure for Quest Week 2017. Please make sure that you have read through the Quest Week Web site carefully and that you have discussed the options that interest you with your parents and friends.

In order to make your Quest Week option selection, you must ensure that your Gateway log-in is working. If you are unable to log-in, please see the technicians in Rm 143 well before you need to log-in.

Once on the Gateway web site, you need to click on:

1.)    Activities (in black next to ARR)

2.)    Activity in that pull-down menu.

3.)    Select Quest Week 2017 from the Blue tab at the top of the page.

4.)    Then you should be able to make your selection, once the Gateway system is ‘live’.

5.)    Once the option is full, you will get a “no quota” message if you continue to try to get in. You then need to select something else.

6.)    Whilst the system is open, you may change your option, but you must ‘withdraw’ from your chosen option before you can select another.

7.)    The options are filled on a first come – first served basis and they also have pre-set maximums. Once they are full, you will not be able to add your name, and so will have to consider an alternative option.

8.)    Please remember that your choices are FINAL and you cannot change your option once the system is closed.

Dates for Sign Up

1.       Sign up opens to Y11 & Y12 (next year’s Y12 & Y13) on Thursday 9th March at 8:00pm and closes onFriday 10th March at 9:00pm.

2.   Open to Y8, Y9 & Y10 (next year’s Y9, Y10 & Y11) on Saturday 11th March at 10:00am and closes on Sunday 12th March at 9:00pm.

We will then assess the situation on Monday/Tuesday 13th/14th March – we should be able to tell which options have low numbers, which might be able to be saved and which will definitely not run.

On Tuesday 14th March students who have chosen options which, due to low numbers, are not viable to run will be emailed and asked to make a new selection when the system re-opens on Wednesday 16th March.  At this point, if you do NOT receive an email you may assume that your place on your chosen option is secured and that the trip is viable at that time.

3.   The system re-opens to Y8 to Y12 on Wed 15th March at 8:00pm and closes for the final time on Friday 17thMarch at 9:00pm.

If you have any questions ahead of the sign up process please come and see Sasha in the general office.

Kind regards,

Ms. Sasha James and Mrs. Stephanie Weathington
