SnowSports

Each year we an annual Ski Trip offered to all Year 4-8’s students to Porters Pass in Term 3. This experience allows for children to get out of their comfort zone and to experience success and build confidence by learning a new skill.
All students go into a ski or snowboard school with a professional instructor for an hour and half. Once these lessons are completed all students have the freedom of skiing or snowboarding for the rest of the day.
It is a trip that definitely is embraced by all students and as well as the many parents who also attended to assist, with some also enjoying a chance to ski.
