Just One Word … WOW!

Posted by under The Trip Comments Off on Just One Word … WOW!

Today was our first full day in San Francisco and an opportunity to see a large amount of this beautiful city. After a full continental breakfast, we took to the footpaths of the world famous Lombard Street. Although we thought we were walking down Lombard Street, we didn’t realise that first we had to walk […]

Goodbye Heavenly – Hello San Francisco

Posted by under The Trip Comments Off on Goodbye Heavenly – Hello San Francisco

Leaving Heavenly was always going to be hard as each of the boys, in their own way, have got a huge amount out of their time here. As they say though, “all good things must come to an end” and this morning we finished our packing and boarded our bus to head back towards San […]

Let’s See Some Action

Posted by under The Trip, Video Comments Off on Let’s See Some Action

Heavenly can never really be described to an extent where one will appreciate the beauty of it. In a similar manner, photos and video don’t do it justice. Having said that … we’ll certainly give it a go! Below is another video package. A huge thanks to Sam Greig (Year 11) who offered to put […]

Heavenly by Name – Heavenly by Nature

Posted by under The Trip Comments Off on Heavenly by Name – Heavenly by Nature

We woke up this morning to the fantastic news that the winds had died down overnight and the snow arrived! Rooftops around the village were sprinkled with snow, making the already picturesque environment amazing. This news was greeted with great excitement as the boys prepared for their last day of skiing and boarding. The gondola […]

High Winds Hit Tahoe

Posted by under The Trip Comments Off on High Winds Hit Tahoe

We saw something totally new today … a cloud. For the first time on the trip we didn’t have a perfectly clear sky but rather a large cloud that poked its head above the mountain for about an hour and then disappeared, leaving the blue sky we are used to. Having said this, the wind […]

A Day for Exploring

Posted by under The Trip Comments Off on A Day for Exploring

Weather report … same old, same old … in other words … perfect! So rather than focusing on the incredible weather, let’s get straight onto what the boys have been up to on the mountain. Today saw many of the boys being a little more adventurous with more than half of the group moving from […]

Deja Vu In Heavenly

Posted by under The Trip Comments Off on Deja Vu In Heavenly

We’ve now had two full days in Heavenly and as far as the weather goes, the two days have been identical – not a cloud in the sky! This has led to perfect skiing conditions where visibility is literally kilometres and the chill not too hard to handle. I thought that today it would be […]

Happy Birthday Joe

Posted by under The Trip Comments Off on Happy Birthday Joe

In most cases, the phrase “You only turn 13 once” would be accurate. For Joe Flannery (Year 8) though he has been lucky to experience it twice! On our flight to the USA he was 13 for about an hour before crossing the date line and all of a sudden becoming younger again (if only […]

A Blue Bird Day

Posted by under The Trip Comments Off on A Blue Bird Day

They use the phrase “Blue Bird Day” a lot here and as we headed onto the slopes of Heavenly today we saw first hand what exactly a Blue Bird Day is.¬†We had totally clear skies, very little wind, a chill in the air to remind us of where we were and the very pleasant surprise […]

A Relaxing First Night

Posted by under The Trip Comments Off on A Relaxing First Night

The last article made comment of how much sleep one got on the plane depending on who you sat near. Clearly from the photo in that article there were a few who didn’t sleep a lot. Well … have a look at the same boys on the bus trip!!! The time on the bus was […]

Watch Out San Fran … We’re Here!

Posted by under The Trip Comments Off on Watch Out San Fran … We’re Here!

After 13 hours on our United Airlines flight, and the softest landing ever experienced, we have arrived in San Francisco. Most of us managed to get a few hours sleep on the plane, although this depended on which Joeys boys you were sitting near. The usual aircraft food didn’t do a lot to help its […]
