Philosophy

What we aim to achieve:

  • To develop self esteem, trust, communication & problem solving skills through activities that have positive outcomes in a safe and non-threatening environment. The focus is on participation and fun (challenge by choice).
  • To maintain and develop health and fitness through a series of climbing based activities and challenges.
  • Encourage talented athletes to pursue climbing as a sport.

Method – How we achieve these outcomes:

  • All students receive a safety induction that provides them with the opportunity
    to hold the ropes (belay) for their classmates once competent. Belaying is only
    permitted for Years 5 and above.
  • A basic warm up is demonstrated during week one and is then recommended
    for subsequent weeks.
  • New and progressive skills are taught weekly in a group situation. The
    students are encouraged to employ these techniques during their supervised
    climbing (Facilitated Program only).
  • Towards the end of term students have their current climbing competence
    assessed. They are graded on a scale that ranges from beginner to expert.
    The scale notes their achievements and highlights the areas they need to
    focus on in order to progress as a climber (Facilitated Program only).
