Medals at the ISS Championships
The annual Independent Schools’ Ski Championships took place again in Les Deux Alpes, France in the first week of the Christmas break. Over 300 students and 30 schools enjoyed champagne powder snow for two days of training before three days of competition. In an exciting format, each student competed in a Giant Slalom, Slalom and Team Slalom event. With some familiar local schools and some specialist ski schools taking part, competition proved to be tough, but it was clear that our students had a great time, became better skiers and enjoyed the week of skiing. The senior team, lead by Nick, did particularly well in the Team Slalom going through as group stage winners. The real success came in the Junior Girls section with Coral, Ava and Sonya all winning individual bronze and silver medals. Alice also scored a high position despite racing against older girls. The Junior Girls’ Team were also awarded an overall silver medal, and the Junior Team won a bronze medal in the Team Slalom event.
This is only our second year at the competition and our success at junior level indicates that we have a bright future in the tournament. We are now embarking on a training programme throughout the year, and should your child wish to get involved please email me at [email protected]. Similarly, should any company wish to see their logo on our new kit, please get in touch.Back to all news
