During February half term, a group of students headed off to the Italian slopes for another exciting ski trip. The long day of travelling was rewarded by a beautiful view of the Italian Dolomites from the town of Piancavallo. The following morning, after a well-earned rest, the students were eager to ski. They were sorted into ski groups, based on ability and confidence, then met their ski instructors who coached them throughout the week. Everyone truly enjoyed improving their skiing over the course of the trip as well as the exciting opportunity to be taken off-piste. By the end of the week, students were doing jumps at the snow park, and skiing the slopes holding hands in pairs – a challenging skill! Each night, the teachers kindly organised enjoyable activities such as a quiz night, pizza night, board games, a disco and a beautiful torchlit descent down the mountain! By the end of the trip, great friendships were made with our instructors and our rep Josh. An Italian rap song was even written and performed by one of our delightful instructors, Mattia. The trip was a great success and all the girls would like to say a huge thank you to the teachers involved who made this amazing and memorable trip possible.
