Get in Early and Keep in Contact

Make the initial contact early in the year as term timetables fill very quickly. Once the initial letter has been sent, a follow-up phone call or email within one week is imperative as an expression of continued interest and to keep the school updated or informed if verbal communication is more convenient for them. After a successful RHSV, make sure to send a thank you letter and/or prepare a thank you gift for involved staff members. Add the school visited and staff member contact details to the master RHSV document for your RHC and/or region of RHCs.
