Seven students from Farlington School have completed a ten-week climbing course at the K2 in Crawley to achieve their Level 1 Climbing Certificate.
The students, from Years 11 and 13, undertook the course as one of their PE options and throughout it they learnt to tie knots, safely belay one another, climb a range of routes as well as tackling the 12-metre climbing wall.
Farlington’s John Dwyer said, “Indoor climbing offers both mental and physical exercise. The mind benefits from the problem-solving this sport demands, and increases mental control along with improved climbing skills.
The group thoroughly enjoyed the activity and the opportunity to take on a new challenge. They should be very proud of their achievements!”
