Up for the challenge!

Class 2 at Brockton Primary recently completed two practise walks in preparation for their upcoming Snowdon challenge. The children, who were aged seven to nine years, made great use of the school’s rural location to practise some hill walking. A day’s walk along part of Wenlock Edge and back to school, followed a few days later by a climb up the Long Mynd built children’s fitness and skills, in readiness for their next challenge – to climb Wales’ highest mountain.

“It’s steeper than Snowdon,” one child reported back after climbing the Long Mynd. The staff and children enjoyed clement weather on both practise walks so are hoping for the same when it comes to their big climb.
