Easter Ski Trip Pila, Italy
On 6th April Mrs. Maddocks, Miss. Lloyd, Miss Brown and Rickie took 28 year 7-10 students to Pila, Italy for a week skiing! The girls made fantastic progress and by the end of week, all girls could turn, stop and ski down the beautiful slopes of the Italian Alps. In the evening, students went ice-skating, to a disco, did karaoke, went out for pizza and finished the week with a presentation evening where all girls were awarded for their achievements on the slopes. The girls were fantastic ambassadors for the school and a brilliant time was had by all! We are already planning our next trip for April 2015!
