Jack conquers Snowdon


Jack successfully completed the Slateman and Snowdon challenge on the weekend. This was for a place in the team for Extreme Classrooms. This year the Extreme Classrooms is attempting to take 8 pupils to base camp Everest. Jack was selected for the gruelling weekend in Wales and did a superb job for himself and representing the school.

We were accompanied by sporting legends such as Lewis Moody (English rugby legend), Thinus Delport (ex South African rugby player), Rachel Mckenzie (world female,kick boxing champion), Alan Chambers MBE ( ex royal marine and polar explorer) and Jeremy Newton ( Swindon Town academy manager).

We wait to see if Jack makes it to the next cut, but he did a great job on the hard challenge in North Wales which comprised a 6 mile run and a fast paced climb to the summit of Snowdon.

Another summit ticked off for the Coln House mountaineers!
