Adventurous students preparing to hit the slopes


Thrill-seeking students are preparing to hit the slopes for a ski adventure in Austria.

More than 20 students from Years 8-13 will be heading to St Johann, in Tirol, for the six-day trip during the half-term holidays later this month. (FEB)

After settling in to the Pension Lacknerhof, the students - 16 complete beginners and seven intermediates - will take to the slopes under the guidance of professional instructors.

They will also take part in a number of other activities, including ice skating and bowling, before rounding off the action-packed trip with a presentation evening with their ski instructors on the last night.

Mrs R Coldicott, who organises the trip every two years, said: “We are thoroughly looking forward to another fantastic ski trip to Austria.

“As part of our preparations, students visited the dry ski slope in Telford. Our 16 beginners put skis on for the first time and made fabulous progress in just two hours, whilst our intermediate skiers refreshed their skills to help them hit the ground running from day one in Austria.”
