Ski Trip December 2021

21st September 2020

Dear Parent

RE: Ski Trip to Bormio, Italy, 15th December 2021 – 21st December 2021

It is the aim of the school not only to encourage your child in their academic studies, but also to develop their social skills and physical fitness as well as to enable them to experience environments outside their normal day to day lives.

Due to the current circumstances we have had to defer our ski trip in December 2020 to the following year. Our current Year 11 students will sadly not be able to come with us as they will have left the college. This means we are able to offer 16 places to students in Years 7 to 10. The trip will be to Bormio in Italy from 15th December – 21st December 2021.

The trip will be organised through ‘Ski and Sport Travel Group’, a company which specialises in organising school ski and sports trips abroad.

The cost is £1060, which will include the following:

  • Cost of transfers to and from UK airport
  • Return flights
  • Coach transfers in Italy
  • 6 nights full board accommodation (midday meal on the mountain)
  • 5 days ski pass
  • 5 days x 5 hours lessons from fully qualified ski instructors
  • Equipment hire- skis/boots/poles/helmets
  • Representative in resort

Not included in the cost:

  • Drinks, except with breakfast (water is placed on tables for lunch and evening meals)
  • Pocket money
  • Specialist clothing and ski wear (although the latter can be arranged through Ski and Sport Travel on the presentation evening for parents closer to the trip)
  • PLEASE NOTE THAT THE WEARING OF SAFETY HELMETS IS NOW COMPULSORY BY ITALIAN LAW FOR CHILDREN UP TO THE AGE OF 14. For the safety of the students I am making it compulsory for all students to wear a safety helmet at all times whilst on the slopes.

This is a fantastic opportunity for your son/daughter to experience a well organised and structured trip with leading tour operators, being fully staffed by Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College staff at all times.

Places are limited to 16 students and if you decide you would like your child to take part in this amazing opportunity a non-refundable deposit of £250 is required on the opening date of 1st October at 11:10am, with a further 10 payments of £81 per month or a mid-payment of £500 by 1st June 2021 with the final payment no later than 28th September 2021. We would strongly recommend that you use ‘ParentPay’ for these monthly installments as it is the most convenient method of payment.

Details of the resort can be found on www.bormioski.eu/en/. A presentation for parents and students will be organised before the trip to give you more details. If you have any further questions or queries then please do not hesitate to contact me beokma@blessededward.co.uk

Yours sincerely

Miss Mason
Assistant Head Teacher
