Once again this year we have returned from the ski trip full of pride for the 80 students who were both great company and fantastic Ambassadors for the Academy.
We had an unusually high number of beginner skiers, 43, but as usual they made dramatic progress and all were able to complete the tricky slalom race at the end of the week. Our advanced group enjoyed a fantastic week under the guidance of Instructor Chrissi, covering as many as possible of the 760km available on their lift passes. We also had 1 week and 2 week skiers who benefitted from the good conditions to make incredible progress.
Our students received praise for their manners, their attempts to regularly speak German and their attentiveness during the lessons. The instructors, the staff at the ski-hire, the Hotel staff, the coach drivers and our reps, Daryl and Chrissi all commented on how they were a credit to the Academy.
I would like to thank the staff; Mr Surtees, Mr Richards, Mr Wyllie, Mr Prest, Mr Parkin, Mr Earle, Mr White, Miss Johnson and Miss Henderson, who gave up their holiday time to help make the trip such a success and enable the students (and the staff themselves!!) to create memories for life.
Thanks, Mrs Simpson
