National School Ski Race

On Saturday 3rd June the ski race squad, Mr Ellemore, Mrs Berkin and I travelled up to Manchester for the National Schools Indoor Open Championships.

We arrived in Manchester at 3pm all very excited and ready for our training session on the slope from 4pm-6pm. Getting ourselves prepared and carrying out lots of practice runs of the race course. After a very tiring 2 hours and long drive we enjoyed a very yummy supper and then headed off to bed. 

The children got themselves suited and booted and onto the slope for some pre-race training. At 10am the first run began.

All the children had 3 runs of the race course, with their fastest time putting them onto the results table. 

Once we had completed our 3 runs both teams, A and B then competed in a dual slalom race. Sadly, we got knocked out in the first round. But they all did really well and I’m so proud of all of them.

I would just like to say a very big thank you to all the parents that made it up to Manchester and for all your support. The children were great, well done to everyone that took part.
