Ski Competition



On Sunday 8th June we entered a team in the inaugural London Schools' Ski Race, held at The Gosling Centre, Welwyn Garden City. Joshua (S1), Scarlett (S2) and Adam (S2) each had 2 runs on a slalom course and their times were added together. We finished an excellent 2nd overall in our age group. Joshua, Adam and Scarlett all benefited beforehand from some race training by Emily Evans (UK dry slope champion) and Adam and Joshua are pictured receiving their silver medals from Charlotte Evans (Sochi Gold Medalist)

Merton Court School Easter Ski Trip 2014



Thirty four children and parents attended this year's ski trip to the beautiful resort (and UNESCO Biosphere) of St Michael im Lungau, Austria
We stayed at the Hotel Zum Weissen Stein within walking distance of the ski lifts.
We were fortunate again to receive plenty of fresh snow during the week, enabling us to make fresh tracks across some very empty pistes. Our ski instructors Iris, Doris, Chris and the formidable Gabby were great fun. The children and adult learners made great progress and by the end of the week everyone was skiing blues, reds and even some black runs!
Apres-ski events included curling, movie night, bingo and quiz night.
On our final day we spent a few hours in Mozart's birthplace, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Salzburg, admiring the baroque architecture.
It was a fabulous trip with great snow and great skiing. Details of next year's trip are being finalised and will be released very soon! Watch this space!

Lots of people complimented us and the manager at Pizza Hut said we were welcome any time as the children were so well behaved. The total money raised was £140.
