Students from The Rochester Grammar School travelled to Snowdon on Friday 28th February 2020 for their acclimatisation and training weekend for World Challenge. A group of 30 students led by Miss Parry and other staff will be travelling to Tanzania in July 2020 for their World Challenge expedition.
A group of these students will be climbing Kilimanjaro during their expedition and needed to experience climbing a mountain and camping in challenging conditions. As most of the students had completed either their Bronze and Silver DofE awards, the expedition leaders were pleased with how they performed despite the gale force winds and almost constant rain.
Unfortunately due to these weather conditions, the students were unable to climb to the summit of Snowdon but they walked to within 100 m of the summit. We look forward to hearing about their experiences later in the year.
