White School 2019
Each year our school takes a group of students to the mountains of Zakopane. While there the students have a week of training in Skiing, snowboarding, ice skating and cross country skiing. Following the training they compete in the Winter Olympics. Many events take place and hopefully our students place and win gold, silver and bronze medals as they have in years prior. Winter camp not only allows for students to achieve in physical activity the health benefits of spending time outdoors is more than just getting a healthy dose of fresh air, it’s avoiding the cold and flu viruses that thrive in indoor environments too.
Not only will they learn how to ski or snowboard, they’ll learn how to do it properly and gain lots of insights on how they can enhance their skills even further. Learning something new is exciting and it will give them a huge sense of accomplishment. The ability to learn something new and that gained self-confidence will help them in other aspect of life. And finally, our students will increase their circle of friends and build greater social skills.
This is a great opportunity for them to make new friends doing an activity that they can enjoy together every winter. Having friends to ski and snowboard with will make them want to spend more time being active and healthy in the great outdoors.
