Ice skating can be a great way to enjoy the winter season. Ice skating is a popular winter activity with both children and adults. What a great way to spend a chilly morning or afternoon! Some of our students with experience in ice skating enjoyed the activity, gliding gracefully on the ice; but our Physical Education and Sport teacher helped those students with no prior experience to get a hang of this sport. It is not easy ice skating for the first time; it will take a while to get there. This classic pastime is full of thrills [...]
