A group of 22 students from Court Fields School were very fortunate to travel to Austria during February half term and enjoy fabulous skiing. We left school on Friday with a long journey ahead but with lots of excitement and anticipation on board! We travelled through the night and on Saturday started to see the fantastic mountains and loads of snow on our journey.
By Saturday evening, we pulled into the drive of the Alte Post, which was our home for the following week. It was all very welcoming and friendly.
The next day was our first day of skiing, we skied the Stubai Glacier. There were quite a few nervous people but once everyone got started the nerves went really quickly. The snow was absolutely fantastic during the whole week and the sun was shining every day! During the evenings we did lots of different activities including ice skating, swimming and a pizza evening, finishing on the last evening with a ski presentation. Lots of medals for the winners were presented by the ski school.
Everyone had a great week and we all couldn’t believe how fast the time had flown! Everywhere the students went, staff were told how amazing all the students had been. The trip was an incredible life experience which all the students and staff will always remember.
