Ski trip teaches students more than sportPosted: 29th March 2019
A week on the ski slopes taught young people more than just the sport.
A group of 42 Year 7 to 11 students from Forest Hall School spent a week at Altenmarkt im Pongau, Austria.
As well as daily skiing lessons, students enjoyed tubing, a rollercoaster trip and a pizza night.
Sarah Power, careers and enrichment lead, said: “By the end of the week, everyone could go down a slope on their own on their feet! The progress our students made was out of this world. They were so determined and positive.
“It was a really good experience for them to become independent people and to do some travelling. It was a really successful trip.”
Stephen Hehir, executive head, said: “Experiences that broaden our students’ horizons are so important for their future development. It teaches them to take risks, become more resilient and to gain greater confidence in themselves.
“Well done to all students and staff involved.”
