TY Ski Trip 2020

Posted on : February 4, 2020

For the last week of January SGS Transition Year students headed off to Santa Caterina Valfurva, Italy, for the annual TY ski trip. Setting off from Sligo in the dead of night the students, accompanied by Mr Lynch, Mr Giblin, Ms Stinson and Ms McGuinness, travelled by bus to Dublin airport, arriving next day in the snow-covered Italian Alps. The following days were spent on the slopes learning to ski and the evenings were occupied by activities including ice-skating and tobogganing. The students got a chance to explore the lovely town of Santa Catalina and do a bit of souvenir shopping before returning to Sligo almost a week later. The trip was a great success – and quite exhausting for both teachers and students! Thanks so much to the teachers for giving up their time to take the TYs away. Photos are HERE.
