Most importantly it was a trip in which the students learned more deeply about themselves and the others with whom they shared the trip, developing richer and more fruitful relationships with peers and teachers a like.
They learned how to be more aware of their senses and to use this sensual information to become more adept skiers and more acutely aware of their ever changing mountain environments. And to use these skills to make more calculated in risk taking and making more sensible choices. They learned to be not only responsible for their own safety but also for the safety of others around them.
As well as skiing, the students enjoyed sports activities & games, sledging, quizzes, disco dancing, hot chocolate and super sing-alongs with Mr. Carroll! The children were fantastic to work with and were a real credit to our school and their families. I quote the JoSchi Management...
" We really enjoyed having BISB as our guests! Such nice and well behaved children!! It was really a pleasure to have you stay with us in Joschi- Hochkar!"
Thank you everyone for a marvelous, happy & safe trip and looking forward to BISB JUNIOR SKI TRIP 2017 already!
