44 Pupils and 5 staff set off for Sestriere in Italy on Saturday 10th February 2018. The students were fantastic throughout the journey and we were extremely pleased to see the snowy mountains ahead of us on the coach. Later that evening we went to get our ski hire and had a wander around the village to get our bearings. The village was really pretty, with twinkling Christmas lights and a lovely feel to it. Each day the pupils got 4 hours of ski lessons, 2 in the morning and 2 after lunch. The ski instructors were fantastic and the girls improved a lot during the week. There were different activities at night which ranged from tubing, pizza night, to snow man beetle drive, a fancy dress competition and a werewolf game, hosted by our lovely rep Andy. Unfortunately the ice skating was a no go….due to the ice rink melting! We did however benefit from the lovely warm sun during the day, which made the skiing even better.
After the last ski lesson the pupils were presented with the ski levels and a ski badge and that evening we held a presentation evening, awarding various prizes to the girls for things that had occurred over the week.
The girls represented themselves, the school and Liverpool fantastically everyday and I hope they enjoyed it as much as we did. I would also like to add a huge thank you to the staff who accompanied the trip for their constant hard work over the 8 days.
