Ski Trip 2019

- Venue: Geneva
We were very fortunate to secure thirty seats for Year 12 to see this prestigious production, starring Mark Rylance as Iago and Andre Holland as Othello, which has just finished its hugely successful run at the Globe.
Our sixth formers proved themselves worthy ambassadors of Alexandra Park School; their conduct was exemplary and their appreciation, engagement and enthusiasm for the performance and the venue were impressive. It was an absolute pleasure to accompany Year 12 on this trip and students’ responses are a testament to their enjoyment and enhanced understanding of their set text ‘Othello:
Mr Short and Mr Bonham-Carter recently took Year 11 classics students on a very successful trip to Pompeii. Below are comments from some of the students involved:
The trip was relaxing but yet fast paced and energetic at the same time. We wasted no time in the beautiful ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii and saw everything we could have hoped to have seen in the time we had. We also got an educational commentary on the sights from Mr Bonham-Carter and Mr Short who I’m sure had an insightful time also. Not just educational but also highly enjoyable as Naples provided us with the best pizza that we have ever tasted and a picturesque view from the Bay.Daniel, 11X
Mrs Stopps says…
Another great Ski Trip to Italy this February half term
Although the early rises may have been tough for some of us, it was needed to pack so much into the day and WOW we did fit lots in.
Incredible 5 hours of lessons every day from the fabulous ski instructors, which took us far and wide all over the mountains seeing some spectacular views. Even the beginners managed to ski the Red slopes by the end of the week and saw some incredible sights.
Then, every evening filled with exciting activities such as ice-skating, Bowling, Quizzes & even throwing ourselves down a ski run on a rubber ring!
Resilience, teamwork and helping each other were fundamental in making this such a successful trip.
Well done to all the Students that did so well and the Staff for all their help.
