Pupils from Marpool Primary School took part in a regional rock-climbing contest
Pupils from an Exmouth primary school have in a regional rock-climbing contest.
Some six pupils from Marpool Primary School took part in the inter-schools climbing competition at ‘Rock and Rapid’ in South Molton.
The contest involved two disciplines – top-rope climbing and bouldering.
Top-rope climbing involves climing rocks while being attached by rope to the top of the structure while bouldering is a stripped-down version of the sport where there are no ropes or harnesses.
Each pupil had three top-rope climbs and three boulder problems to complete.
A spokesperson for the school said: “The pupils did very well and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Furthermore, the children showed great perseverance and courage.
“Well done to Rocca and Lacey from Year six, Rhys Lawes (Year five), Taylor (Year four), and Year three pupils Jonny and Keira.”
