Over February half term , pupils from year 4 to 8 went on the ski trip to Mont Sainte Anne, Toronto and Niagara Falls in Canada.
The flight to Montreal revealed some amazing views of the Canadian east coast and the children settled quickly into the accommodation at Mont Saint Anne enjoying the indoor pool, games room and breakfast feasts. They benefitted from excellent skiing instruction in very small groups where the beginners and intermediate groups made great progress. The more advanced skiers loved the variety of challenging runs. The weather veered from glorious sunshine and extremely cold to snowy and even a little rain.
Excursions included an evening meal at the Sugar Shack Factory where maple syrup was produced, an evening in Quebec and an exhilarating visit to the winter playground at Valcartier Village des Sports. On Thursday, the party flew to Toronto and visited the CN Tower late afternoon to witness amazing views and skies as the sun went down. On the final day they visited Niagara falls which proved to be a spectacular, semi-frozen highlight of the trip.
Without exception, all the children enjoyed a tremendous week away where their skiing improve dramatically and the packed itinerary gave them plenty of opportunity to sample Canadian culture.
