5th Year Ski Tour 2025

Dear Parent(s)/ Guardian(s),

We are organizing a trip to Andalo (Paganella Ski Area) in Italy for the February 2025 Mid Term break. The tour is open to students who will be in 5th year in 2025. 

The proposed tour details are below, and we would ask you to take into consideration the points below before signing your child up for the tour:

  • The price of the tour is based on a set number of students, if demand is greater than the number of places available, this may result in a lottery for places. There are 50 places available. 
  • If a student pulls out of the tour this has a direct effect on the cost of the tour for all of the other students.
  • In short please do not sign your child up for the tour if you or they are in doubt about actually going on the tour. If a student does pull out of the tour for medically uncertified reasons all payments will be lost unless a replacement student is sourced. 
  • A non-refundable deposit of €400 will be paid (details to follow for successful applicants) and any outstanding Student Direct Costs must be paid in full if a student wishes to travel on this tour.
