Woodham Academy Ski Trip


Woodham Academy Ski Trip.

Students from Woodham Academy have recently returned from the snow-capped peaks of the Aosta Valley. The group skied in the resort of Pila which has stunning panoramic views of the border with Switzerland, including famous landmarks such as Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn.

The group of 60 students acquitted themselves extremely well and showed excellent character and resilience, whilst overcoming the challenges presented by learning a new skill in the mountain environment. Off the slopes, students explored the charming historic town of Aosta, where there are many Roman ruins that date back over 2000 years. They also savored authentic Italian cuisine and applied new language skills when purchasing souvenirs in the town, thereby enriching their cultural experiences.

Mr Morgans, Deputy Headteacher at Woodham, said: “It’s wonderful to see the huge strides students make in so many different ways when they’re participating in such a trip. An international residential trip creates such diverse learning opportunities beyond the snow sports lessons. Along with activities like The Duke of Edinburgh Awards scheme and further residential experiences, these opportunities demonstrate Woodham Academy’s continual commitment to offering educational experiences beyond that of the formal curriculum.”
