on a week's French ski school.


Harriet's Mum and Dad are very proud of her receiving her 2e étoile level 2* badge from Enzo her ski instructor which she gained on completing a week of French ski school (ESF) this half term holiday in La Tania in the French Alpes. Most of the other children in her class/ group were 2 years older than her. Harriet's Mum says 'She really seems to have excelled at skiing for her age at 5 and a half years old!'


Madeleine's award is her first ski award as this was her first experience. Her Mum says

"Madeleine also earned herself a ESF Ski School Wolf Piou Piou award on the slopes of France. Her Mum says 'Madeleine did fantastically well and we're both so proud of her and her sister's progress last week. it was only Madeleine's first week on skis but she learned control and how to navigate turns on the slopes. She was fearless at the end of the week wanting to race us all down the mountain. She's already looking forward to her next ski trip"


This is what Harriet had to do to receive the badge:


2 ND STAR - Series of around ten perfect elementary turns over a suitable marked out course on a moderately steep slope. Basic direct line passing over hollows and bumps.  

                                                                          Basic skating step.
