STUDENTS at Chilton Trinity have been watching the Winter Olympic closely and trying to pick up tips in preparation for their upcoming skiing trip.

The exciting Winter Olympics are now whetting the appetite for 45 Bridgwater students who are heading off for a skiing trip next February.

The Chilton Trinity students will spend a week at the Ziller Valley in Austria.

One of the lead organisers, teacher Nathan Webb said: “Everyone is so excited about this trip and the Winter Olympics is helping to focus minds even more on what is to come.

"It would be tremendous if we could inspire even more of our students into winter sports.”
