Ski Trip 2015

HAMD Ski Trip – Spring 2015

At Harris Academy Morden we pride ourselves on the extra-curricular opportunities on offer to our students. Our AEE weeks provide cultural and historical opportunities in our capital city.

We are delighted to announce an extremely exciting opportunity for students, a Ski Trip to Torgon in Switerzland where students will learn to ski in the breath-taking beauty of the Swiss Alps. The trip will take place in our Spring 2015 AEE Week, from February 7th-15th 2015.

This is an ideal opportunity for students to learn a completely new skill under the skilled guidance of the Swiss Ski School, world leaders in ski tuition.  Students will have 5 hours of tuition per day to hone their skills and will no doubt be extremely competent skiers by the end of the trip.

Not only will students be learning a completely new skill but they will also have the opportunity to experience surroundings that they may well have never come across before, the majestic mountains and valleys of the Swiss Alps.  Students will be accompanied by staff at all times but will have the freedom to explore different routes, some of which even take you into France and will  also experience the thrill of skiing by torchlight during one of the evening activities.

This is a hugely exciting trip that will no doubt provide our students with some truly unforgettable experiences.
