The pupils at Bank View have been really looking forward to the completion of our very own climbing wall, I am happy to announce that the wall is completed and six members of staff have qualified as climbing instructors. It has taken a lot of hard work so congratulations to Miss Southern, Mr Friend, Caroline, Laura and Luke who will be joining myself as instructors on the wall. This addition to the department provides new challenges to pupils and allows them to develop their self-confidence and team work skills. The pupils are already reaping the benefits and enjoying the variety of challenges on offer.
The new wall is 3.5 meters wide and 8 meters tall. It allows 4 different climbing routes. These routes are set to allow access to all. There is also a route that traverses the base of the wall for those pupils who may have difficulty with heights.
