Ski Trip 2013

Categories: School News

 

On the 11th of February 14 pupils form S2 and S3 went on the annual skiing trip to Italy for one week. We got a plane from Edinburgh airport to Geneva where we drove to Pila in Italy. We stayed in a nice hotel close to the mountain. Each morning after breakfast we got a bus to the bottom of the mountain where we took a cable car up to the slopes. After we were kitted out we started our two hour morning ski lesson. We stopped for a quick bite to eat for lunch at the mountain cafe before going out again with our instructors. On the last day we all received certificates and medals that showed the stage we had achieved. The weather was great throughout the week with cold mornings and warm afternoons.

The staff kept us busy at night with a disco, a quiz, a trip to an ice cream shop and a meal out to a pizza restaurant. On the last night we went out shopping and even got to go to the Lindt shop and the Nike shop. Throughout the trip friendships were made with other schools. Many of us really want to go again next year and we all wish we were still there.
