Ski Trip to Madesimo

On Saturday 16th February, our ski group of 30 pupils, parents, siblings and grandparents jetted off to Milan, bound for Madesimo, a quaint village two hours drive from Milan. 

We arrived at Hotel Boscone just before midnight and had to be up by 7.00am the next morning to be kitted out with helmets, ski boots and skis for the action-packed week ahead.

Each day followed the same routine: breakfast by 8.30am and down to ski school for 9.00am. Parents and children were divided into ability groups and skied from 9.00am - 12.00pm, we had lunch at a hotel just opposite ski school daily from 12.30 - 2.00pm, followed by ski school again until 4.00pm.

Everyone that came on the trip, whether they had skied before or not, gave it a go, which was great to see!

Here are some of the comments made by the children:

“This trip was fantastic!” Arien P, Year 3

“I really enjoyed using posts for the first time in school.” Aleena B

“Skiing down the red slope was amazing!” Noah B, Year 1

“This has been one of the best school trips I have ever been on!” Jamie G, Year 5

“I skied backwards and bumped into Yasmine and laughed.” India G, 4 years old

“I have never been skiing before but it was really fun!” Seanna P, Year 6

“I loved skiing down the big hill!” Rishan P, Year 3

“I loved jumping over the snowy bumps!” Dubem, Year 4

“I love the way the wind blows in my face when I go skiing really fast!” Chukwuemeka O, Year 6
