On Wednesday 21st January, school entered two teams in the inaugural Carlisle Rock Climbing competition. The competition was held at Eden Rock Centre and involved eight schools from the area. The children had an amazing afternoon bouldering (climbing without ropes and harnesses!) and had to tackle 15 different routes. The routes varied in difficulty and the children were only allowed to use the green handholds and foot supports. Points were awarded for completing a route on the first attempt (10 points), the second attempt (5 points) or any attempt (3 points). All of the children scored highly and their combined totals meant that we finished second in both the boys and girls competitions! A huge well-done to all the children who took part – you were super competitors and excellent ambassadors for Houghton School as usual. The boys team: George McMath, Niall Siddaway, Morgan Berry, Tom Atkinson, Matthew Williamson and Joss Wardlow. The girls team: Carissa Sedgewick, Anya Bartlett, Lucy Mason, Lauren Byers, Lauren Robinson and Sophie Richardson.Thank you also to the parents who came and helped and supported us. If you are interested in taking your child climbing/bouldering, Eden Rock has lots of different options and tuition available. For more information, visit their website
