Rock Climbing with Outdoor Ed
Stage 1 and 2 Outdoor Education students have spent the last 6 weeks involved in a Rock Climbing program learning a variety of climbing skills.
Students worked together to tackle the problem of crate climbing in The Tank at Darwin High School to begin, and have since moved on to climbing the new rock climbing wall at Darwin Middle School and the difficult walls at The Rock Centre in Doctor's Gully.
The program has taught knot tying and rock climbing techniques, and next week students will experience an abseil off the cliff at Bullocky Point.
The Stage 2 students will utilise all their learning on a 4-day rock climbing camp at Hayes Creek at the end of the term, where they will be climbing on cliffs up to 25 metres tall and abseiling 40 metres.
The Stage 1 students will enjoy a one-day climbing excursion during the camp and have the chance to see our experienced Stage 2 students in action.
Darwin High School would like to thank Darwin Middle School for kindly sharing their brand new Multi Purpose Hall.
