Ski Club

Who, When, Where: Ski club takes place at Midlothian Snowsports Centre (Hillend) for pupils in P3 to P7.  The lessons take place between 4 and 5:30pm and are for all levels of ability.  The Autumn term starts on Friday 22nd September and will run until Friday 15th December (no ski club on the 20th October or 10th November).

NB: Transport is not provided

Club Convenors: Jo & Malcolm Pentland

Club email: ski-club@sm-pc.org

Tutor(s) Name(s): Hillend provide the instructors

Allocation of spaces:

1st Priority: Continuing P3-P7 members (ie active members in preceding term)

2nd Priority: new/returning P3-P7s requiring a place in a class that has spaces available

Club Convenor’s children are always given a priority place in the club. Please contact the Club Convenor should you wish to take advantage of this privilege by offering to take on this position in future.

Cost: 96.80 for 11 weeks of lessons.  This can be paid by cheque or cash.  This payment includes tuition, skis, boots and helmet hire.  It is essential that children attend with gloves and wearing long sleeves, waterproof clothing is advisable.

A child’s space is not guaranteed until payment is received. All payment is due PRIOR to clubs starting. Failure to do so could result in your child not being admitted in to the club.

Cheques are to be written to SMPC, envelopes marked ‘Ski Club’ & posted in the Clubs Box by the Janitor’s Office (Main School)

Refunds: Very occasionally classes need to be cancelled (e.g. instructor sickness). SMPC policy is that refunds will only be given in exceptional circumstances at the individual club’s discretion as offering refunds when this happens involves a lot of work for relatively small amounts of money. If, after accepting & paying for a place, your child subsequently does not take the place / drops out / changes their mind, a refund will not be given

SMPC Code of Conduct

Parents are kindly reminded that SMPC Clubs only operate thanks to a school parent who volunteers to act as Club Convenor & run the administrative side of the club. Parents are requested to respect the efforts of each Club Convenor.
