Around thirty-one pupils and three teachers from Fort Hill College have returned from an exhausting week-long skiing trip in Bulgaria, recently.

Teachers Mr Richer, Mrs Richer and Mrs McCormick, also joined the pupils on their trip to Pamporovo.

Pupils would spend four hours daily mastering the art of skiing at the Pamporovo Ski School – approximately three hours in the morning and one hour in the afternoon.

They would break up their routine with lunch at the top of Snejanka Mountain either in the glorious sunshine or by sitting in front of a huge log fire.

Pupils were commended by the instructors for the excellent progress made during the week, with each receiving a Certificate at the end, to mark their A* achievement.

After dinner each evening, pupils took part in a number of activities.

These including bum boarding followed by hot chocolate, to name but a few and they were thoroughly enjoyed by all.

The students would also enjoy other activities including ten pin bowling, swimming, pool, a disco, karaoke or a bit of shopping for souvenirs to take home.

Mr Richer, group leader, and the ski instructors at the ski centre, congratulated all the pupils on their progress and on being excellent ambassadors for the school.

They look forward to another trip with the school hopefully next year.
