Miss Moira Young, Ski Trip Coordinator —

The Otago Girls’ High School annual ski trip to Coronet Peak and the Remarkables will take place from 25th – 28th August. This is an exciting opportunity to spend four wonderful days immersed in the outdoors developing self-management and responsibility, interpersonal skills and skiing or snowboarding techniques. Otago Girls’ High School ski trips have a reputation for being fun, challenging, exhilarating and an extremely worthwhile experience.

Every student will participate each day in a 90-minute lesson with qualified instructors. For the remainder of the day, they have the opportunity to explore the ski field with their friends.

The ski trip is open to all students from Year 13 – Year 9, and all abilities. Last year the trip cost $680, and this cost is likely to increase this year due to rising cost of food, transport, accommodation and ski package. We encourage all students to start fundraising and support their families by contributing to the cost themselves.

If this is your idea of Outdoor Education, then this is the trip for you! Listen out for an initial meeting over the coming weeks.
