EATING ARRANGEMENTS FOR FRIDAY:  Some parents have asked about eating arrangements for the children on Friday as they travel back from the Isle of Wight, and in particular whether the children will need dinner after they return home.  The arrangements are that the children will have lunch, and then after that only snacks will be available.
