Mr. Pywell presented an assembly this friday following the recent and extremely successful school skiing trip to Macugnaga, Italy, from the 28th January to the 2nd February. Children who attended the trip were given the chance to share with the rest of the school the amazing opportunities such a trip presented.

Well done children, we are very proud of you!|
Apart from the obvious fun aspect of skiing in such a beautiful setting on the foothills of the Italian Alps, the children in assembly all voiced their individual learning experiences. These included teamwork, independence, confidence, respect, resilience, getting to know their fellow students a little better, and of course amongst quite a few other things learning to speak a little italian. Due to the incredible success of this annual trip, Mrs. Amos from St. Stephen's has already begun planning for the adventure next year.
