Year 5 and 6 Ski trip to Alpe d’Huez

The Junior School Ski trip to Alpe d’Huez was enjoyed by 32 girls from Years 5 and 6. After an initial shocker of a wake up call and a 3am departure from school, we all arrived safely at the hotel ready for lunch. We were joined by Norwich and Nottingham GDST girls for the week.

We had six amazing days of sunshine, with temperatures reaching 16 degrees at times! Every girl made some lovely new friends and fantastic progress, not only in their skiing technique, but also with regards to their levels of independence, persistence and resilience!

The teachers are busy planning the 2020 trip and can’t wait to hit the slopes once again.
