Another beautiful day on the slopes today with lots of skiing by all the groups. No promotions today but lots of fun had by all.
CALLING ALL NOTLEY STUDENTS!
There will be an important ski meeting on Wednesday lunch time 3 Feb, in the Gym. Please be there at the start of lunch 1.35pm
The ferry groups for the 2016 Ski Trip have now been published.
Please make sure you know what group you are in as you will be asked to get into your ferry groups a lot during the trip.
The final itinerary has been uploaded to the website now. There are a few minor changes so please spend five minutes and read it thoroughly.
There will be a parents’/carers’ information evening on Tuesday 10 November at 6.30pm, in Braintree Arts Theatre, when a short presentation will give you details of the trip to Austria. With Christmas fast approaching, you will be told what kit is needed for the trip as there are a few things that would make good Christmas presents.
The day started with wall to wall sunshine so spirits were high as we made our way up the valley to Zauchensee.
We split into our groups and the beginners made their way over to the nursery slope to practice what they had learnt on the dry slope. After a couple of hours they were ready to head up to the top of the mountain to try out the cruisey blue from the top to the bottom. There were a few worried faces and some choice remarks as they saw what faced them for the next hour or so but they all managed to make their way down, some faster than others! It’s the first time in a long time that we have been able to get the beginners up to the top of the mountain before lunch and they did brilliantly. There were tears and tantrums but by the time we got to the bottom there were smiles all round and all were ready for a well-deserved lunch.
Well, where do we start today? The fog had lifted by the morning and we have were able to see today. This also meant that everyone else was able to see us, which for some was quite embarrassing seeing some of the fancy dress costumes people wore! We had the customary group photo on the hill outside the restaurant before we all headed off for a first run down the cruisey blue en masse.
We were up bright and early ready for the first lift at 9am. All those that had been only on the dry slope made their way over to the nursery slopes and after a few short runs managed to get on the button lift. They did so well that we managed to get them all up to the top of the mountain before lunch, something we have never done before. All managed to get back down to the restaurant for lunch some later than others. There were some very relieved and hungry students, (and a boiled egg aka Erin!) most were still smiling!
