During the February break, 50 students and 6 staff travelled by coach to Folgaria, Italy for a week of skiing and to sample the delights of Italian cuisine, hospitality and culture.
Every member of the party massively improved their skiing ability throughout the week on the Costa runs. The area has a superb variety of blue and red runs, which were ideal for our large number of beginners, who actually found themselves on top of the mountain by the end of day one! Even our more advances skiers were challenged with black runs and new techniques throughout the week. We have all brought back some wonderful memories and would like to thank everyone, from our local Italian instructors, ski rep, tour company, hotel owner, coach drivers to the participating staff for providing this magical experience for our young people. It is best summed up by our fabulous students with comments such as, "I enjoyed making new friends and having so many laughs.... the food was amazing, and the learning made me want to do more holidays skiing" and "I enjoyed the beautiful weather, the amazing meals, the Pizzeria and skiing with friends!" One student said," I loved that everyone enjoyed themselves, it felt like we were one big skiing family!"
