Well, this trip was an exhilarating experience with some cherished memories. The hotel was beautiful with fantastic facilities (including a swimming pool). The resort was also lovely and the scenery was breathtaking.
Every day the pupils got an early morning wake up call, which they all appreciated! Breakfast was at 8:00am every morning and everyone were on the buses by 9:15: – 9:30am. We were at the ski school ready for action by 10:00am, and we were off with our ski instructor to do some serious ski-ing. There were some show offs in the groups but believe you me they did fall at some stage – especially Mr Gault!
We had a break for coffee or delicious hot chocolate at about 12pm, and we also had this time to get to know our ski instructors a bit better! Then we had more time to ski until lunch. After lunch we had another lesson from 1:00-3:00pm and after that we went back to the hotel. Apres-ski was time for swimming, chilling out etc. We also had a couple of afternoons to do some souvenir shopping or buying presents to take home.
Every night was time for socialising – each evening had something organised, for example quiz, ringos, bowling, karaoke – we definitely have some pupils and teachers who would be successful on The X-Factor.
As a whole the ski trip was fantastic, but there are some tired faces this week. Everyone was well behaved and seemed to have a good time.
