Knox S1 climb to new NICAS levels

Congratulations to the S1 pupils from Knox Academy who achieved their Foundation Climber Level 1 NICAS Award. (National Indoor Climbing Achievement Awards).

To achieve their awards the pupils attended 4 climbing sessions at Tranent, Alien Rock and Ratho. They received coaching on the foundations of climbing and all worked hard to complete their level 1 award.

If your school is interested in Indoor Climbing and pupils acheiving  NICAS awards get in touch with the outdoor learning service and your nominated outdoor learning teacher  

Congratulations guys – great skill, teamwork and  hard work!

Lost Primary Pupils?

There is still time for East Lothian Primary Pupils to find themselves. A few sessions left in the free Orienteering 2011/12 Primary Outdoor Learning Days are still up for grabs. Point your pupils in the right direction with a chance to work on map and team skills and develop some confident individuals along the way. Why not bring your whole class along?

Details of these free sessions delivered by the Outdoor Learning Service team are here and also availability for the events here.

Come on get your compasses out! (Well actually, as well as the teaching we can supply those too!).
