Students invited to take part in future ski trip

Students are being urged to sign up to the Academy’s skiing trip after a similar successful adventure earlier this year.

Will McKenzie, teacher at Pool Academy, is organising the week planned to take place in the Ziller Valley, Mayrhofen in Tyrol.

He is working with Skiteam4, an organisation which provides school ski tours to different resorts across Europe and North America.

Students taking part will travel by air to Austria. During the trip students will have four hours of ski instruction from qualified ski instructors per day for the six days away.

Mr McKenzie said: “Accommodation will be at the family run Sidan Hotel which is perfectly located 150 meters from the gondola lift linking into 136 km of skiing.

“The hotel has great facilities including a pizzeria and a cellar games room which has plenty of seating and space so students can chill out. They can also play table tennis and table football and there is a DVD player for a film night.

“There will also be other evening activities which are likely to include swimming and ice skating.”

Anyone wishing to take part in the trip will need a valid passport.

Earlier this year the group travelled to Santa Caterina, in the Valfurva Valley, near Bormio in Italy.

The end of the week culminated in a slalom race down the slopes with medal presentations from the Ski instructors later in the day.

Please contact Mr McKenzie if you are interested in taking part.
