During half term last week, a group of students from St Benedict’s have enjoyed a fabulous week of skiing in Italy.
The group of 30 students were accompanied by Mr Lambert who arranged the trip. He said:
“I would like to say a massive thanks to all the students in how they represented the school throughout the trip and how they performed on the slopes. I really hope they enjoyed it as much as it looked.”
“Also a huge thanks to the staff involved in taking the students over to the resort. It really was a trip they will never forget and the best I’ve personally ran out of St Benedict’s.“
On the final evening of the trip, a special awards ceremony was held to pick the Ski Awards Folgaria for 2019. Full details below:
