2019 Austria Ski Trip

Dear Parent/Guardian

Ski trip to Austria, February 2019

For a number of years the school has organised successful ski trips, and in the forthcoming year we plan to return to Austria during February half-term 2019 (15th – 23rd February 2019). We will be staying near the town of Saalbach-Hinterglemm at the Hotel Grubhof – details of which can be found at http://www.grubhof.at

The cost of the trip is £949 and includes:

  • Travel by coach from school to Austria
  • Full board accommodation in the hotel
  • Full medical insurance (for the duration of the trip)
  • 5 hours of lessons per day for 5 days plus 4 hours on the final day
  • Lift pass for six days
  • Hire of boots, skis, poles and helmet
  • Evening activities and entertainment

The only costs not included are spending money for drinks, snacks, presents etc. and the purchase of ski clothing (jacket, ski trousers etc.).

If you wish to apply for a place for your child on the trip, you will need to complete the form on the reverse of this letter and return it to either Mr Shield or Mr Lennox. You will also need to pay a £200 deposit via your child’s parentpay account no later than Friday, 23rd March. The payment will be listed as Ski Trip 2019. If you are not able to access parentpay then please contact either Mr Shield or Mr Lennox.

Traditionally the demand for places on this trip is high and this normally exceeds the number of places available so if we are oversubscribed then we will use the friendship groups specified and draw groups out of a hat. Those who are unlucky will have their deposit returned and be placed on the reserve list and offered places if they become available. We will notify you in due course if your application has been successful.

Successful applicants will require a valid British passport and a valid European Health Insurance Card for the visit.

If you have any further queries, please feel free to contact either Mr Shield or Mr Lennox

Yours faithfully

Mr. D Shield

Party Leader
