St David’s Ski Trip Huge Success

Published: 23.03.2022 ( 2 years ago )

St David’s College annual ski trip to the Italian resort of Ponte di Legno has been hailed a huge success, with 20 skiers from the school hitting the slopes during the half term break.

The last time the school were able to organise a trip was in February 2020 just before the first Covid lockdown.

The sun shone throughout the week which resulted in some tricky conditions on the slopes at times, but this didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of our skiers who were only too thrilled to be trying skiing for the first time or to be back on the slopes.

It was Louis last ever St David’s ski trip, something the Year 13 pupil is clearly sad about.

“I joined the school in Year 9 and I’ve been on every ski trip since as I enjoy them so much,” he said.

“I also go skiing with my parents and younger brother every year, but I enjoy the school one as you’re with mates having a laugh on the slopes and we always go for ice cream and crepes afterwards every day!”

The 18-year-old continued: “Mr and Mrs Demery and Mrs Peevor were really fun to be with on the trip, and the best part of the day for me was skiing with everyone at the end of the day after ski school.”

Louis has already been accepted for an apprenticeship in accountancy when he leaves St David’s in the Summer, after taking business studies, geography and Performing Arts in the Sixth Form.

When asked what he will miss about his school he replied:

“I know most people say it about St David’s but it really is a family.

“It’s the relationship between the pupils and the teachers. We are treated as individuals unlike other schools I’ve attended where the pupils are treated as one.”

He added: “I came to St David’s after hearing about all the activities especially the 4x4 driving activity, I loved driving those Land Rovers!”
