Student skiers ‘Go Far’ for National Star

Twenty-eight National Star students heading to Andorra for a ski experience are taking part in National Star’s ‘Go Far, Be a Star’ challenge.

They hope to raise £200 by tracking how many miles they collectively ski!

The first group of National Star student skiers are heading for the slopes of Andorra in mid-January. COVID put paid to the ski experience for several years and students are very excited at the prospect of putting their skills into action and gaining vital evidence towards their accreditations and therapy goals.

Learners have worked hard in education, lifeskills, and therapy to prepare for this experience with many needing to develop their physical strength, balance and coordination, whilst others have been considering how to manage their fatigue levels to enable them to fully participate in the learning experience.

The money that the skiers raise will go towards furnishing and equipping a new specialist residential accommodation as part of the Building a Brighter Future Appeal. Sponsor them today
