Wilderness Day - Abseiling

Today, the children headed out to County Durham for a day of abseiling with Wilderness Outdoor Education. They headed up through the fog to the location for the day. Whilst waiting for their turn they had a go at weaselling through gaps in the rock.


Then it was time to take turns at abseiling down from the top. It took a lot of bravery and courage to step over the edge and walk down the cliff. The younger children were so light they had to be assisted down.


The reward for their efforts was to get a freshly cooked bacon butty after eating their own packed lunches! Things taste so much better when eaten outside after doing something that has pushed you to the limits.
