Over half term we took 42 pupils to Les Orres in France for the legendry annual Ski Trip. The journey to the ski resort flew by and, before we knew it, we were driving up picturesque valleys with a crisp blue lake on one side and beautiful white snow-capped mountains in front of us. It didn’t take long for everyone to disembark and start enjoying everything that the French mountains had to offer. Every day was filled with five hours of swoosh and swish; learning how to ski or perfecting the parallel and curve turns. As the morning sessions finished, we would all meet in our hotel for the heartiest of lunches and a rest to revive those legs, and then we were back out for the afternoon sessions. All the students made excellent progress, finishing every single day with beaming smiles, laughing about the biggest fall or the best wipe out. The evenings were just as fun as the days with students taking part in quizzes, ice skating, bowling, loads of fun games and the ongoing pool competition! I would like to say a big thank you and a massive well done to all the students for making the week an absolutely perfect half term. Watch this space for details of Ski 2017.
