NEWS FROM HAMPTON

Lower Sixth students honed

their linguistic skills on a work

experience trip to Armentières in

northern France.

Work placements ranged from primary schools

to bakeries and restaurants. Overcoming

first-day nerves, all the boys settled in well

and the local businesses praised their work

ethic and commitment. The Francophiles

returned exhausted, but delighted with the

noticeable improvement in their language skills.

Senior Ski Trip

Hampton boys enjoyed a taste of ‘la dolce

vita’ as they took to the slopes on the Senior

Ski Trip in Gressoney, Italy.

Boys of all abilities made the most of the

stunning conditions as they improved their

skiing, as well as enjoying the Italian cuisine

in the evenings.

By the end of the week, all the boys had

successfully navigated the notoriously

difficult

Moos Black Run

.

Work

Experience

Among them were 28 novices, who progressed so well that

they soon graduated from the nursery slopes to venture on to

the blue and red runs, aided by superb weather conditions.

There was plenty of fun après-ski entertainment too, including

sledging, basketball and trampolining.

Junior Ski Trip

A group of 60 skiers headed to Les

Menuires in France for the Junior Ski Trip.
