Last week, our VET Sport and Recreation students were fortunate to travel to Mount Buller for a three day ski trip, where they learnt the fundamentals of skiing and how they can use these skills in a sport or recreational career. Below is a fantastic essay written by Ryley who atteneded the ski trip.
On Wednesday the 30th of August, we went to Mt. Buller to ski down the slopes. On the first day the first year Sport & Rec students participated in skiing lessons with their instructor Clara, they learnt how to turn, slow down and stay balanced, all these skills are needed to perfect the art of skiing. As me (Ryley) being second year I left the group to venture the slopes with Ms. Gladstone. First we went down a run called the shaky knees, my skiing skills were a bit rusty so I fell a couple of times. At 4:45 all skiers had to meet at a tree in the middle of the mountain, my friend and I were a little late due to some technical difficulties. Once re-grouped we all headed back to our accommodation the ‘Double-B Ski Lodge’ where we would cook and eat our meals then chill for a couple hours until we went to bed.
