Ski Trip

Don Valley Ski Trip – Courmayeur February 2018

On 10th February 23 students and 4 members of staff left Don Valley on the 20 hour coach journey to the Italian ski resort of Courmayeur.

With many of the students experiencing skiing on snow for the first time we were lucky to have such amazing conditions on the first 3 days of the trip. With clear blue skies and reasonably mild temperatures for the time of year the students quickly progressed and ‘goggle tans’ were a common feature!

With 2 days of snow towards the end of the week the students were put to the test and falling over was certainly less painful.

Evening activities such as ice skating, bum boarding and staff favourite, pizza night, kept the group busy all week and a very quiet coach journey home was definitely a sign that they had all had an amazing and extremely tiring half term week.

The students, who ranged from Y8 to Y12, were a credit to themselves and the Academy and we look forward to launching our next trip for 2020.
