During the February half term, forty children from Braeside and Normanhurst went to Austria for an exciting week of skiing in Innsbruck. Most of the children who went on the trip had very little experience of skiing, but that did not stop any pupils having a fantastic time. As early as day two all of the children were able to stand on their skis.
Pupils were very lucky to have had excellent skiing conditions and the ski school instructors were pleased with our children’s endurance. Everyone made quick progress and found themselves on the blue and red slopes within days.
As well as skiing the children also had two evenings out on the trip. The first was into Innsbruck, the capital of Austria’s western state of Tyrol, a city in the Alps that has long been a destination for winter sports. The second outing was to have delicious pizza in the nearby town.
It was a great trip with some fantastic memories made.
