Welwyn Garden City pupils left climbing the wall, but in a good way!
THINGS were looking up at one WGC school.
Or, rather, pupils were the ones looking up.
For Holy Family School had brought in a climbing wall for a day, as part of National School Sport Week.
PE co-ordinator Stephanie White said they used funds allocated by the Welwyn Hatfield School Sport Partnership to hire the apparatus.
She said: “We decided to do something the children hadn’t done before.
You may also want to watch:
“They loved it. Someone from every class got to the top.”
Three members of staff also scaled the dizzy heights including Mrs White, who revealed she felt compelled to make it all the way as pupils watching from the ground below shouted encouragement.

As part of the week, pupils were also given diary sheets to take home and record what they did to be active during that week.
Those who were the most active were presented with prizes and certificates.
Mrs White added the climbing wall might yet make a return visit.
“Lots of pupils said they’d like to have it back, so it looks like we’ll have to save up again!”
