The ingredients for a great weekend away: 10 students, a wide range of climbs varying in difficultly, a great location, a whole lot of energy and great weather. Mix it all together and the outcome is something amazing. Students from Year 7 – 10 took part and were rewarded with a chance to extend their learning from the indoor environment and push themselves to conquer climbs up to 23m high. The support and the teamwork were outstanding. Even when it is not your turn to climb, you are needed to belay or back someone up as smiley. Rope and safety management were active to keep our climbers safe and allow them to push themselves further.
For students interested in the future, look ahead to rock climbing in 2017, a sport that caters for all ages 12 and above and abilities.
