Rock Climbing at QE

Date Posted: 21/11/2016 | Posted In: Latest news

QE’s students have been enjoying getting involved in the College’s Rock Climbing club every Thursday. Students have the benefit of one to one tuition, free access to the rock climbing facility (Rock Antics in Newton Aycliffe) and a free mini bus journey to and from the venue.

The club has grown from strength to strength with nearly 30 regular members now attending sessions and enjoying this recreational activity.  Rock climbing has many great benefits to the students who participate regularly including key employability skills such as problem solving, communication, team building and so much more.  Exercise such as rock climbing has also been proven to relieve stress, increase confidence and self-esteem as well as offering a huge amount of physical benefits.

If you would like more information or would like to get involved then please contact Ian Hewitt, QE’s College Sports Maker, at ihewitt@qeliz.ac.uk.
