OLYMPIC SPIRIT INSPIRES KING'S SKIERS

OLYMPIC SPIRIT INSPIRES KING'S SKIERS

At 11pm on the 9th February forty-two King's Rochester pupils arrived at Main School Yard ready to head off on the annual ski trip to Solden. After one of the longest coach trips any of the staff could remember being on in recent times, the party arrived at Hotel Kleon in Vent full of energy and excitement and the conditions did not disappoint. Thanks to the recent flurry of snow, Solden had become one of the most sought after resorts in Europe and this meant all our skiers were able to have five days of excellent skiing, which included visiting the Glacier and the recent set of James Bond film, 'Spectre'.

The group were also treated to an array of evening activities including bum boarding, pizza night and swimming. The week concluded with a brilliant awards ceremony where the instructors commented on the vast improvements of all our pupil's skiing and what a pleasure they had been to ski with.

All that was left was the long journey back and thanks to our excellent coach drivers we arrived back in Rochester two hours ahead of estimated arrival time! This was a brilliant trip and our pupils should be commended for both their attitude and behaviour. Bring on next year!!
