For over 60 pupils and staff members at Malet Lambert, February half term was spent learning winter sports in Europe on our annual school ski trip.
The destination was Le Sestriere in Italy, and after 24 hours in a coach and on a ferry, the group arrived at their resort ready to test their skills on the slopes.
With 24 hours worth of skiiing tuition during the week - plus lots of time to practice on the slopes - even pupils at beginner level were able to develop and improve their skiing abilities significantly during their stay.
In the evenings, staff arranged a variety of activities to keep the team occupied, including quizzes, bingo, a disco, bum boarding and pizza night.
Ski Person of the Week was awarded to Year 11 pupil Charlie, with awards also being given out to Most Improved Skier, Fastest Skier and Most Entertaining Pupil.
The return journey went without a hitch, and the designated coach driver commented on the 'excellent' behaviour of all pupils, saying, "One of the best group of pupils we have taken in a very long time."
