THE 2023 SKI TRIP 

Where do we start with the Ski trip, 6 days of making the best memories  with a fantastic bunch of students from year 8 to year 11. 43 students had a brilliant opportunity to learn or improve their skiing or snowboarding skills a week we wont be forgetting.

We started the trip off with a 24 hour coach journey through the night to the Austrian mountains where we arrived at a traditional Austrian hotel where we would call home for the week. The hotel was perfect with lots of space for free time with a pool table, table tennis tables and two common rooms. We where so incredibly lucky with the weather with blue skies and glorious sunshine every day.

Each day the students had 5 hours of skiing which is a hard feet for even the most experienced of skiers and boarders, the students fully embodied the Rodborough Rs especially resilience. There was a jam packed evening entertainment from team building to traditional Austrian curling 

There where so many memorable moments from the biggest of all wipe-outs, losing ski poles and lift passes, forgetting to put salopettes on in the morning, sliding down the hill on our bums when we were too tired to ski but by far the highlight of the trip was the lunch time party at the top of the mountain on the last day.

A massive thank you to all the staff that helped out during their half term break and to the students for being amazing.

A special mention to Lucca E and Joey H for being awarded King and Queen of the mountain. – Miss Bullock
