“Andy came into our school to speak to our year 5 children about mountaineering and the skills that are used within the sport.
Andy was very prepared and the communication prior to the session was fantastic. He tailored the session to fit in with our school ethos/values and asked us what it was in particular that we wanted him to discuss with the children e.g glaciers, mountains, weather, skills, the sport in general etc. The purpose of Andy’s visit to our school was to teach the children about how essential skills such as teamwork, staying positive, problem solving etc are used in the sport of climbing/mountaineering. Andy’s session was engaging and hands on – he brought in lots of equipment for the children to explore and experiment with.
Andy was also able to calm the nerves of our year 5 children, who will be going climbing and abseiling on their year 6 residential. Lots of the children came away feeling inspired and we will definitely look to invite Andy back during the next academic year! Thank you Andy!”
