Ski Trip

This year’s Ski Trip was extremely successful, with all the students enjoying the time away with their mates, making new friends, and developing their ski/boarding skills.  Some of the highlights were:
  • Seeing the positive interactions between students of all year levels.
  • The look on the student’s faces when waking up to fresh snow at our accommodation.
  • Seeing the fun they had on the slopes and hearing the stories at the end of each day, whether it was how they mastered a new skill… or had a big stack.
  • How the students displayed independence in terms of their organisation for each day.
  • Observing the sociability of our students with those from other schools at the venue, with new friendships formed over a game of cards, Origin, pool or listening to music.
  • The skill development of the students and their willingness to push themselves, even when the going got tough, whether in a lesson or the environment.
  • Seeing the students ski on fresh powder and having fun at night skiing.
  • The group singing and dancing (whilst seated) in the bus.
  • The way they bounced out of bed at the sound of the 6am wake up knocks (ok, maybe this one is not true).
Much time and effort goes into the organisation and supervision of the trip and I thank Mr Foster and Miss Tuton for their efforts in making it a success.
2020 Ski Trip organisation is already underway with both international and domestic options under consideration.
