Congratulations to the Longacre Ski Team who competed in the IAPS Ski Championship in Passo Tonale, Italy this week. This is only the second year the school has taken a team to this event and once again the team put in a strong performance.

The results were as follows:

Mattie Butler – 2nd in the Under 11 Boys Championship

Under 11 Boys Team Championships – 6th

Anise Robinson – 1st Under 9 Girls Plate

William Hall – 4th Under 9 Boys Plate

Under 9 Mixed Team – Plate Champions (Will H, Will J, Anise R)

Under 9 Boys Team – Plate Silver (Will P, Oliver R and Raffy P)

This was a really fantastic set of results when you consider we were up against 255 skiers from 24 schools including the likes of Danes Hill, Westminster, Clifton, Fettes, Lambrook and Dulwich to name a few.

The Longacre parents also did us proud, taking a clean sweep of medals in the Parent’s Race – Fancy Dress Section:

1st – Mr Robinson/Mr Baileff (Pantomime Horse)

2nd – Mrs Baileff (Santa)

3rd – Mr Jackson (Star Wars)
