As soon as the Christmas holidays began a variety of girls from Years 10 to 13 and six members of staff set off to the Sunday River Ski Resort in Maine, and from there to Boston.

After an extremely long journey, we all managed to wake up early the next day for our first day of skiing. Despite the lack of snow, we were able to ski most of the runs that were open and keep ourselves entertained with the banter within our various groups. In the evenings we were able to relax in the pool as well as take part in a variety of activities such as the DJ led bus ride by Mr Dichlian to the bowling alley, and an intense evening of a RMS school quiz, a treasure hunt around the hotel and an awards ceremony.

Once the skiing was over, we headed back down to Boston where we stopped off for some serious shopping at a variety of malls until we reached our hotel in the city centre. On our last evening we were treated to dinner at the Hard Rock Café in true American Style. Our last day consisted of an excellent self-tour guide around places such as Harvard and Quincy Market before we flew home for Christmas.

On behalf of all the girls, Iwould like to thank Mr Dichlian, Mr Broome, Mrs Eccles, Miss Simmonite, Mrs Baron and Miss Boddey for giving up part of their holidays to take us on an unforgettable trip!
