PYP 4&5 Ski Trip
A group of students form PYP 4 and 5, led by Mrs Howard and Ms Demaria, hit the slopes of Hajfell, located in Lille Hammer, Norway during week 12. The Hafjell ski resort opened in 1988 for the Olympic Games in 1994 and is an excellent location for all abilities, especially beginners, since you can ski from the top to the bottom of the mountain on green runs. The students have had a wonderful experience with top class instructors learning to ski or improving their techniques. Students were risk takers, pushing their own boundaries to exert themselves and accomplishing even more than they set out to. All students mastered skiing from the top of the mountain by the end of the trip. Students were able to practice being independent by taking good care of themselves and each other. We have all experienced a great ISH team spirit during the trip, extending the sense of community and togetherness. Good communication was a vital skill that students were able to show. We were very proud of the exemplary behaviour and high standards shown by students during the trip – students were a credit to themselves and their families.
Mrs Howard and Ms Demaria are already underway planning next year’s trip – stay tuned for more info!
