On Friday, March 17th, Year 7 & 8 had their Winter Sports Day.
Students had the choice of three winter activities: Skiing, Curling or Hiking.
In the skiing group, we had around 75 students who had never been on skis before! Ms Merritt and the other teachers were extremely impressed by how quickly a lot of students picked up the sport and were flying down the red hill by the end of the day! It was a fantastic opportunity for students to try something new.
The curling group travelled all the way to Danderyds Curling club where they learned how to curl. Students from 8C said "It was fun sliding around and falling on the ice!" Ms Nieuwenburg said that our students were excellent representatives of our school and that they took on the challenge of curling with lots of laughs and wipe outs!
The hiking group had beautiful weather as they travelled to Hellasgården. They went for a 5km hike where they were able to get amazing views of the lake and Stockholm off in the distance. After the hike, they got competitive and played some football!
Overall, it was a great day with lots of sports and smiling students!
