Ski Trip Day 6: The Last Day Skiing

Day 5 Skiing.......wait for it........be patient........we have had no visits to the hospital and apart from a swollen thumb and a few bruises we are all happy. Especially after 41 Ben and Jerry's.
 
A few tears as the students said bye to their instructors. Lots of very proud students and instructors at how far they have come in such a short period.  9 of our GCSE students are celebrating A or A* grades. Congratulations to Liam, Josh, Ty, Daniel, Dom, Jack, Jacob, Ellie and Megan. All of whom completed black runs, some even taking on the double black diamonds!! Start spreading the news. New York here we come!

Ski Trip Day 5: One Day To Go

One day to go. Ty managed to lose a ski on the lift, but amazingly skied off it with only one.  Good skills! He recovered his ski and his group are to attempt black runs tomorrow. Cameron's instructor was hugely impressed and went as far as calling him a model student. Ten pin bowling saw Luke and Joe takeover at least 4 lanes. If their arms don't ache in the morning it will be amazing.  The conditions were tough today with limited visibility and 7 inches of snow. This seemed to get the students buzzing more than ever.  The beginners group are now attempting blues.  Good day!

Ski Trip Day 4: More Snow On The Way!

The beginners group make it onto higher greens. The top group look like trying the double blacks tomorrow and all others doing well. Daniel was proud to reduce his 9 falls to 1. Ellis Evans' room claim the music quiz prize, whilst Shannan's room win the general knowledge quiz. Amy made us laugh as when playing goalkeeper on the table football she asked which way her team were shooting??? Joe O administered first aid 'confidence' to Mr. Morgan and then purchased the biggest bottle of juice I've ever seen. 3 litres of Gatorade! Some tired students today, but many very proud of their progress. Jamie, Ellis, Ty, Jack, Frankie and Shannan to name a few. Snow expected tonight.
