Après Ski Day 3

A hilarious end to a great day with Les Menuires Winter Olympics. We all raced in teams on the snow against our friends and foes from Lindisfarne and Belford middle schools and ended the fun with hot chocolate in the dining room. Wheelbarrow racing, piggy back racing and pole spinning got every one into a fun, competitive mood. This was definitely an activity for you Mrs Dawson!
