During the January Ski course we had the opportunity to nominate some of our Year 11 students who had good skiing ability to take part in the Interski Scholarship scheme. The scheme was launched 12 seasons ago and a total of 102 scholars have since successfully completed the course, becoming qualified BASI instructors.
Over the course of winter season 2013/14 the instructors, following strict criteria, have nominated 30 candidates, from amongst whom, following a day of training, skiing and enjoyment, members of the Interski Snowsport School will make their final choice of the ten showing the best ability and aptitude, who will then become the 11th group of Interski scholars.
We are delighted that, from a significant number of recommended students, Bethany Bainbridge has been chosen to attend the Interski Scholarship Selection Day at CHILL FACTORe, Trafford Park on Friday 4th July. Beth was our obvious choice and she spent time with some of the coaches in Courmayeur who assessed her skiing ability and aptitude. We would like to wish her luck for the selection in July.
