TY Ski Trip

Posted on : January 28, 2022

This year the TYs got away on their Ski Trip and spent a fantastic week in Italy. The destination was Santa Caterina Valfurva in the North of the country, and the TYs enjoyed some great snow for the trip. Each day saw an early start on the slopes with a busy day of ski instruction and practice. The evenings saw activities including the ever-popular sledding. Four teachers accompanied the students, Mr Giblin, Ms McGuinness, Mr Lynch and Ms McManus. It was a busy week for them as they kept an eagle eye on their charges! The students and teachers had to undergo a Covid test before setting out, and luckily all were able to travel. The group arrived home late on Friday 28th February. Thanks to the people who made the trip possible and especially the teachers who accompanied them to Italy.
