With the term over it was the perfect time for an alpine adventure – and that is exactly what the Y6-Y8 boys on this year’s Christmas ski trip enjoyed.

In high spirits, the boys and staff set off on the last day of term to the beautiful slopes of the Zillertal Valley in Austria for a week of superb skiing. Throughout the trip they enjoyed the high life, working hard to learn or improve their skills on skis. They also had plenty of fun away from the slopes with swimming, bowling, snowball fights and Tyrolean nights. Food – always important – was in abundance both on the top of the world by day and the hotel by night.

It is always wonderful to see the boys trying new experiences, strengthening and forming friendships, and growing in confidence.

Our favourite quotes of the week from the boys clearly sum up the success of their adventures.

“I’m definitely coming again next year”

“Please can I join the ski team?”

. . . and best of all

“I’ve finally found a sport I love.”
