The year 12 Physical Education ski/snowboard trip by Warwick Kain

Year 12 PE Ski/Snowboard trip

Our annual Year 12 PE Ski/Snowboarding trip took place at the Remarkables Ski Field in August.

Students prepare for the trip by conducting a Risk Assessment Management Exercise (RAMS) form. This is a part of their internal assessment for Level 2 Physical Education.

The 3 day trip was action packed and great fun. Students excelled rapidly and were taking on more advanced slopes after only one day. It was both a pleasure to see the students' encouragement of each other and enthusiasm both on the slopes and back at base camp. 

We all enjoyed having a full three days of skiing in which to improve and the weather allowed us to take full advantage of the alpine environment. A trip into Queenstown for dinner one night was a nice change. 

On leaving Queenstown most people were exhausted but pleased with the trip as a whole. We are creating the most lovely self sufficient adventurous students who know how to embrace a challenge and push their limits. This trip continues to be a major highlight of my year, every year.
