The annual Perins ski trip gives students a fantastic skiing adventure as well as a chance to experience the culture of the mountains of Europe.
During the 2017 Easter Holidays, sixty Year 8, 9 and 10 students and seven members of staff traveled to the ski resort of Sestrière in Italy. On 8th April, the group set off on their journey traveling by coach and ferry and arrived at their hotel for the week, where the students were amazed by the breathtaking views.
Skiing conditions were excellent for the time of year with hardly a cloud in the sky all week. The lift pass for the trip enabled the group to access an impressive 400km of ski terrain. To ensure that the students got the most out of their skiing experience, the group has a ski representative solely designated to their group who co-ordinated all of their activities. This included 5 hours of ski lessons per day, accommodating all standards of skier.
During the week the students had the opportunity to visit the highest city in France, Briançon and explore town of Sestrière. After an incredible trip, students and staff returned home on 16th April to rest before the start of term.
The students had an incredible time and have made memories that will last a life time. Thank you to the staff for giving up their time and giving the students a trip they will never forget!
Plans are already underway for the 2018 Ski Trip and details will be sent home shortly.
