Ski Course 2022

PORG International School Ski Course 2022

We finished our first semester this year with our annual ski course at Skalka Family Park.

The children had varying degrees of experience, from beginners to potential racing champions, and were divided into groups where they could progress their skills. You can see how they got on in our Facebook album, here.

Over the course, many children had to learn to overcome their fears and frustrations. Some had to learn their limits and the value of taking the time to learn good technique, but everyone got to a stage where they could do things they couldn't do before.

It takes determination and the support of your friends to conquer a daunting task and it takes compassion to help someone do something which you find easy. These are qualities which we value and encourage in all of our activities - in school and outside.

Local facilities like Skalka Family Park and the other areas where we run activities are a big part of what makes Ostrava such a diverse and cultural city for an International Primary School. They give children the opportunity to learn and develop beyond the classroom, refining characteristics and skills which will last them all their lives and not just on the ski slopes. 

We would like to thank the staff who organised such a fun program for us, with excellent English skills and so much patience with the youngest children. We hope to be back next year!
