Ski Trip to Austria 2018

During the holidays, a group of students and staff travelled to Austria to kick off the holidays in style with a week of skiing. With a wide range of ages and abilities, there was the opportunity for the girls not only to learn some new skills on the slopes but to forge plenty of new friendships.

Along with the skiing, we visited the Salzburg Christmas Market, tried some Austrian bowling, enjoyed a karaoke night, watched plenty of Christmas movies, enjoyed a trip to a local pizzeria and sampled plenty of delicious Austrian food. Despite some impressive falls at times, all of the girls made fantastic progress with their skiing, and most importantly, they had smiles on their faces for the whole week – even after nearly skiing off the side of a slope (Poppy M and Olivia TT!).

I would like to thank all the girls for being so great on the trip. It really was a fantastic start to the Christmas break.
