Day Ski Trips

Nichole Swink

This year has been an epic season for skiing. The Ras Beirut Elementary School took advantage of the amount of snowfall by spending a week busing fourth- and fifth-grade students up to Faqra Club for a day of skiing. Classes were accompanied by their homeroom and PE teachers. Leaving the school at 8am and returning around 3:30, the students were able to get in a good four hours of practice with private instructors. A manouche and hot chocolate lunch was provided at the lodge just at the bottom of the slopes. Everyone had a great experience and enjoyed the beautiful, sunny weather and the bonding that happened amongst students and teachers.
