On Friday 26th of August some of the class went to Cadrona on a school ski trip. The day was a little bit windy, which made it quite cold, but when the sun came out in the afternoon it was much warmer.
Everyone who went had to start the day with a lesson. Some people had a lesson on the chair lift, others were on the big magic carpet and first time skiers were on the small magic carpet. Here are Rylee, Rubie and Lucie as they wait to ride the magic carpet back to the top for their ski lesson.
Even Mrs May had to have a ski lesson. Here she is riding the magic carpet.
Samantha takes a ride on the magic carpet. She sure looks like she rugged up warm this morning.
Rylee takes her skis off, lessons are over, so everybody heads into the cafe for a bit of morning tea. Skiing sure does make you hungry!!!
Back out on the slopes, Mac really does look the part.
...he spent his day on the magic carpet and going up and down the chair lift.
Here is Alex taking a ride up the chair lift with her Dad.
Elliot has his skis on and appears to be ready for action.
Alex displays her lift pass, which gets her up and down on the chair lift as often as she likes for the day.
Elliot looks very warm in all of his ski gear.
Adam takes some time out, just chillin' on the snow.
It was a fantastic day, and everybody felt like they had made huge improvements on last years skiing. A lot of our class progressed onto the chair lift this year and were confidently skiing the slopes by the end of the day.
Some families stayed on and skied for the rest of the weekend, and they enjoyed beautiful weather and a fresh dusting of snow!!!
Thanks to Mrs Benington for organising an awesome ski trip!!! We can't wait to go again next year.
