Friday 25th March 2022
On Friday 25th March 2022 6 pupils from Hunter's Bar Juniors (CB, EB, ER, JL, OS & EJ) went to compete in the Sheffield Bouldering Finals at the Mini Works (Climbing Works).
We had a 9am start and when we arrived we listened to a briefing explain the day and then had to do a warm up. In the previous competition we did the Wasps but for this one we did the Mints.
After all of our climbs we had individual awards with JL picking up the award for HBJ (a chalk bag). This was happening whilst they added up the school points. There was an award for the top three girl climbers and boy climbers. EJ and OS picked up 2nd and 3rd place (respectively) in the individual boys' competition and won a medal and a goodie bag.
After this we found out the top 3 schools in reverse order and we were declared the winners. We had the choice getting a ball of chalk or a notebook as our prize as well as a medal and the trophy (which has been added to our collection see below)
CB-"It was a fun day, it was climbing and climbing is always fun especially when I'm missing school. I'm really excited for the Greater Sheffield Finals on Wednesday (30th March), as we get to test ourselves in a bigger competition."
Ruth Harrington "All the staff said it was a fantastic event, full of enthusiastic youngsters who all tried really hard. Everyone that made it to our final should be really proud.
