After a wonderful week in the Italian Alps, a group of Portsmouth High School girls have returned safely in time for Christmas.
Mrs Brookes, Mrs Nelson and Mr Field took 32 girls from Year 8 to Upper Sixth to Claviere on the Italian/French border.
The group were transported out daily to the fabulous ski resorts of Sestriere and Montgenevre as the village they were staying in had a very limited snow base. Snow fell on Monday night giving a very seasonal feel to the mountains and the village.
The skiing was excellent with first-class instructors guiding the girls around the slopes. Many of the group were beginners but all faced the challenges with typical Portsmouth High School spirit and enthusiasm.
