Erasmus + Work Experience Project

waitressing

14 year 12/13 students and 3 teachers, jetted off to Italy on Wednesday 5th April to take part in what was said to be ‘an experience of a lifetime’. The students took 2 weeks out in Italy skiing and working; half of the students tried their hand at being a ski rep with the company Max Ski and the other half did waitressing in 2 of the most popular hotels at the resort. Sometimes the work was tiring but was very enjoyable.

Being a ski rep included things such as helping other schools put on their ski wear and setting them up for the day, we also helped out with many other activities on a night, doing things such as different quizzes, a disco, bowling and even a little bit of karaoke.

We did 3 hours of skiing a day and although some didn’t ski every day, everyone said that it was one of the best thing they’ve ever done.

Every student said that they have had an experience of a life time and have learnt a lot from this trip . All the students would like to say a massive thanks to the teachers for giving us this opportunity.
