The Solent Academies Trust Ski team joined the Surrey Special Schools Annual Ski trip last week. 8 Pupils from Mary Rose and Redwood Park joined up with 80 other pupils for a week skiing at Prato Nevoso in Italy.
The team travelled by coach to Dover and then down through France and into Italy.
The team had 5 days of fantastic skiing, working on their ski skills in superb conditions, at a wonderful facility with great coaching. This was supported by a wide range of daily cuisine and fun evening entertainment.
This was the second year on the trip for two pupils. One said " It was even better than last year, the snow was amazing and I was really proud to move into the top ski group and go up the mountain. I enjoyed making new friends and trying some yummy new food!".
Dave Turner, the lead teacher, was overwhelmed by how fantastic the trip was." The trip exceeded all of our expectations. The whole trip was extremely well organised and the pupils determination, resilience and independence just grew and grew through every moment. They have made such great progress and have created many memories to cherish. We are so proud of them!".
