A GROUP of 32 pupils accompanied by three members of staff from Albany Academy had the thrill of a skiing trip.

The popular annual event, which is in its 13th year, was once again organised by the school to allow pupils to experience new opportunities.

A spokesman said: “With the Winter Olympics now upon us, it was a chance for pupils to witness first-hand the joy of winter sports.”

Pupils stayed in the French resort of Risoul.
