Billeting is one of the highlights of Junior Carnival – meeting new friends, getting to know them and literally “living” together for a week.
Every participant from WA is asked to host at least two billets. Depending upon the numbers from interstate some people may miss out on a billet or some families may be asked to take multiple billets, if required. Under special circumstances , the two billet rule may be waived.
If you already know someone from Perth you would like to be billeted with, it is important that both you and the WA participant have this clearly marked on the application form to ensure this is organised. Confirmation from the host parent (and not the host participant) is required for the Registration Form.
Billeting will be worked out on the following priority:
- Shomer Shabbat - Glatt Kosher - Kosher -
- Allergies - Gender - Age Group
- Sport Choices
Families will be notified a few days before the start of carnival as to who their host is. This will give you time to make contact with them, to thank them and to discuss any important issues, if any, relating to your child .
Community Day has proven to be a most worthwhile cause and something that participants feels really good about doing.
Plans are underway to make the Community Day interesting, beneficial and to provide each Carnival attendee with a sense of “contributing back”.
Community Day is on the Friday of the Carnival and it is expected that every Carnival participant is actively involved and participates in Community Day.
