QMC students got off to a healthy and enjoyable start to the year after spending the first days of 2017 skiing in the Swiss Ski Village of Saas Fee. By spending six hours each day on the slopes, accompanied by fully qualified ski instructors, students were soon whizzing down the slopes like professionals! Teachers of Sport and PE Chris Kirby and Sarah Goldson accompanied the students on the trip. Chris, who attended the annual trip for the first time commented “What an enjoyable start to 2017. The views were breath-taking and the students progressed so quickly. The same is true for me – at the beginning of the week I could barely stand up on skis and by the end of the trip I ended up on a red run!”
During their time in Switzerland students also enjoyed an action packed après-ski including activities such as swimming, skittles and ice skating.
