A great time was had by all on the 2017 ski trip

During the Easter holidays, a group of students from Ark William Parker and Ark Helenswood went on a joint ski trip to Alpendorf, Austria.

This year's trip was better than ever, it was a huge success, with fantastic skiing and snowboarding opportunities.

During the day the group had amazing fun whilst showing grit and determination in the mastery of new skills; they thoroughly enjoyed all the evening activities too.

Our students behaved impeccably throughout the trip and Snowslippers staff commented on how well our students got involved and rose to new challenges.
