Students from King Edward VI Humanities College have just returned from an unforgettable Easter ski trip to the Italian resort of Sauze D’oulx.
The group stayed in the highest point of the resort, which is part of the extensive Italian Milky Way. The 22-hour coach journey set off after Friday lessons from Spilsby, taking in the scenery of France and the Alps before reaching their destination.
The students thoroughly enjoyed their skiing experience, receiving expert tuition from their Italian ski instructors. At the end of the week, most were able to master the art of staying upright on their skiis and snowboards and the final day saw the two top snowboard and ski groups join up and make the most of the resort’s trickier slopes.
One of the students on the trip, said, “I enjoyed the trip so much, it was great to learn how to ski, eat some tasty Italian food and also visit such a beautiful place. It was well worth the long coach journey.”
Mrs Robson, a teacher accompanying the group, added, “Everyone had a fantastic time. We made some lovely friends and everyone’s confidence grew throughout the trip. It’s great that we’re able to offer this sort of opportunity to our students, and I for one can’t wait until next year’s trip.”
