Year 12 and 13 Snowdonia Trek

The fundraising has begun…

Next summer another group of Year 12 and 13 students will be spending a month out in Tanzania supporting our Salesian family.

In order to support their adventure the students have begun to raise money in various ways and this weekend Mr Lewis organised one of the first team events…a ‘walk’ up to the top of Snowdon. Mr Lewis along with Miss Brown and Brother Dawid set out at 7am on Sunday 29th October with 9 willing walkers. We arrived at the Llanberis train station ready to embark on our journey at 10 o’clock. After 3 and a half hours of uphill climbing, embracing the sunshine and the wind, we enjoyed our hot chocolates in the café at the top and the obligatory selfie. After a lovely rest, we began our 2 and half hour journey down the mountain.

A fantastic day was had by all and this was our first taster of what is to come next summer with Kilimanjaro.

Where now?
