SKI TRIP

 

The St Louis Ski Trip is a bi-annual event and offered to pupils in Year 10 but the planning and organisation of the trip begins when students are in Year 9.

On 7thJanuary 2017, 96 pupils and 9 staff from St Louis will travel once again to Folgaria in Italy for a week of fun on the slopes.  Pupils will enjoy four hours of lessons over six days and some of the apr├Ęs ski activities to look forward to will include ice skating, disco and cinema nights. The focus of their lessons will enable them to part in a slalom race on Thursday afternoon and certificates will be presented on Friday afternoon to all participants.  The ski trip is one of the highlights for a pupil during their time in St Louis! 

WATER SPORTS TRIP

For the first time in a number of years, the PE Department organised a Water Sports Trip in 2014.  This is also a bi-annual trip and in May, over 80 pupils and staff from St Louis travelled to Lou Valagran in the south of France for a five day Water Sports Trip. 

In June 2016, due to political unrest in Europe, the planned trip to the south of France was diverted to Dalguise in Scotland. 69 students enjoyed 5 days of activities including rope/climbing challenges, zip wire, mountain biking, canoeing and abseiling.  The weather was ideal throughout the trip and everyone enjoyed the experience!
