This year's ski trip saw 50 St Helen’s students from Year 8 and Year 10 and five members of staff traveling to Folgarida, Italy, over half-term. The students enjoyed six days of five hours skiing under the guidance of an Italian ski school. The snow was perfect and the weather didn't let us down either. All students gained fantastic skiing experience and showed good progress throughout the week.
We stayed in a truly fantastic family-run hotel directly on the slopes. We were delighted with the food, social spaces, (including TV rooms and a table tennis room where very competitive games were played), and above all else, their hospitality. The hotel was very conveniently located for evening activities including karaoke - one of the many trip highlights - bowling and ice skating.
All in all, the 2018 St Helen’s ski trip was a huge success and very much enjoyed by everybody. We look forward to the next one!
