Ski Trip

Mrs Wilkinson and Miss Currall are currently on the ski slopes at Cardrona with a group of senior students with thanks to the generosity of the Currall family, this group are staying at their holiday home in Cromwell.  During the week some of these senior students practised putting the ski chains onto the school van ‘Betsie’ to ensure they all arrived safely at the mountain to enjoy the slopes and make some fun memories. Students started the day with lessons before hitting the slopes alone, we look forward to hearing how successful the lessons were.
