DAOS take part in National Skiing Championships!

Many thanks to Mrs Wootton for this report:

‘We entered 4 teams this year in the ESSKIA National Skiing Championships held last Sunday.  The students skied really well and mostly achieved personal bests.  The under 16 Boys came a close 5th and might qualify for the National finals next month (Arthur Bucher, Rhys Skene, Henry Chandler, Ben Roberts) . The Under 14 Girls and Under 19 Boys came 6th and 7th respectively.

It was Evie Wootton and Carys Skene’s first competition and they showed big promise skiing their runs.  The fastest skiers on the day this time were Daniel Heymoz in year 12 for the boys and Marlene Bucher in year 8 for the girls.

We were very grateful to parents who helped out – without this help the competition couldn’t take place!’
