Damascus College Ski Trip 2017
Posted: 08-Feb-2017


I know the sun is still shining outside and snow falling from the sky is the last thing people are thinking about at the moment, however, it will be winter before we know it and the Ski Season will be upon us. The Damascus College Ski Trip is very popular and a highlight for many students.

In 2017 the trip is booked for Friday 25th August and concludes on Sunday 27th August 2017. The trip caters for approximately 40 students.

Parents/guardians should also be aware that as the ski trip is an extracurricular activity, the family school fee account must be in order for a student to be able to attend. The Account fees for students expressing interest in the trip will be checked before deposits can be accepted.

In the past we have had occasional issues with students committing to the trip and then dropping out for a variety of reasons. This is generally not a problem as we usually have a waiting list but students need to be aware that if they cannot attend then they need to assist in finding a replacement for their position.

The Snowsports package includes:

• Return coach transfers: Damascus College – Falls Creek
• 2 nights’ accommodation at Halleys Lodge, Falls Creek
• 2 hearty cooked skiers and boarders breakfasts
• 2 evening meals including a main and dessert
• 2 day unlimited Lift passes valid from 3.00p.m on the day of arrival
• 2 group lessons
• 2 day Ski or Board Hire, including helmets

The cost is $736 per paying student based on 40 students.

There may also be additional costs involved with the hire of clothing but this would depend on the individual student. Hopefully there is enough time to borrow these from family members or friends. Please discuss this wonderful opportunity with your son/daughter. Be aware that positions on the trip usually fill up very quickly.

There will be an information meeting for interested students on Wednesday February 22nd at lunchtime, where students must collect an Expression of Interest form. These must be signed and submitted to Student Reception by Friday March 3rd 2017.
