Our 16th annual visit to Passo Tonale was yet again a successful ski trip to the Italian Alps, which provided the 50 students and 5 staff with a week of unforgettable experiences. As always we were made very welcome by the Bulferetti family, who provided a warm welcome and ensured that we were all exceptionally looked after for the duration of the stay.
Our students were a credit to themselves, their families and our school. They had the opportunity, not only, to learn or develop their skiing skills, but also to take part in swimming, karaoke, disco, a games/quiz night and visit to the glacier. They also visited the beautiful church in Ponte de Legno, sampled Italian gelato, had hot chocolate to die for, and had the opportunity to hit the dance floor!
The students made incredible progress in their skiing over the six days and we are indebted to our wonderful instructors Fiorella, Ivo, Mauro, Fabrizio and Stefano. The final day where we were all skiing on the Presena Glacier which was literally one of the highlights of the week. The students really threw themselves into all the activities on offer and their energy seemed to be endless! We look forward to sharing videos, photos stories and wonderful memories on our celebration evening. Memories are made of this!
The Ski Team
Our Year 8 girls won all their matches on December 3rd and are now Hinckley and Bosworth Basket Ball Champions. They will now go to the next round. We also took a b team tonight as had so many at practices and they were fab too! They won one match!
On Wednesday 21st November 4 students from Saint Martin's entered the UKMT Senior Team Maths Challenge at Solihull 6th Form College.
The competition is aimed at high ability Year 12 and 13 students studying mathematics at A level, however with 4 keen students we thought it would be fun to enter with a team of Year 11's and see how it went.
15 teams entered and despite the fact we were the only team not made up of 6th form students we managed an amazing 3rd place.
Congratulations to Elena, Emma, Jack and Sam - you were superb.
