On Monday 10th December, thirteen lucky Year 11s had the opportunity to attend The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead. The students were selected due to the hard work and dedication they have shown towards The Strive for Five programme since September.
After arriving at the centre and getting fully kitted out in all the relevant gear – the students enjoyed a forty five minute snowboarding taster session out on the slopes. Although there were a couple of falls, the students looked like professionals out there gliding down the snow, with some even showing off their skills and adding in some twists and jumps!
After a short break, and a chance to warm up with a nice hot chocolate, the students had a go on the Ringo Slide. This was the chance for the them to speed down a snowy slide in a rubber ring, and race the opponent on the parallel slide. After many screams, twists and bumps, it was time to hand all the gear back, and head back to school after a fun filled few hours on the slopes.
A massive well done to all who attended, you have not only worked very hard so far this year, you also showed off your skills on the slopes!
