Ski Trip of a lifetime for saltash.net students

Posted by on Mar 6, 2019 in News | No Comments

Skiers of all abilities took to the snowy slopes of both Austria and Switzerland, as students spent an action-packed February half term putting their skiing abilities to the test.

The over 20-hour bus trip (each way!) was certainly worth it, as 38 students and 4 staff of a range of skiing abilities took to the slopes on the Austrian-Swiss border at the ski resort of Ischgl, and the Swiss village of Samnaun.

The group stayed in the picturesque village of Pfunds, taking the short trip to Ischgl every morning, before splitting into four groups, each accompanied by a member of saltash.net staff and instructor, and spending the day skiing across the international border.

Mr Feldwick, Miss Crook, Mr Budd and Miss Lewis accompanied the students, who behaved impeccably during the trip and represented saltash.net very well.

Head of Year 10 and Ski Trip leader, Mr Feldwick, was impressed with how much the students improved their skiing skills.

“After a great start, it all went downhill!  In all seriousness – one of, if not THE best trips I have run in 13 years.  We had amazing conditions and a great bunch of kids.  Skiing is only the half of it – these kids learn SO much about themselves and their own resilience that I really wish I could take them all.  Real life learning.  I can’t wait for next year!” he said.

Letters about next year’s trip have already been handed to students, and places are going fast!
