Inspiring Aspirations

This afternoon we were very lucky to have Ben Heason come and talk to us about his lifetime goals and achievements. This was a fascinating talk about how Ben entered into the climbing world, and how his skills and goals have inspired him to push the limits of his sport.

Climbing has taken Ben all over the world, with his biggest achievement being Angel Falls in Venezuela – the highest waterfall in the world. It took him and his team twenty days to conquer the waterfall, and twenty hours to descend. This meant sleeping on the edge of the cliff, whilst transporting all their equipment and supplies.

This talk truly inspired the children to think about their own ambitions and aspirations for the future. A big thank you to Ben for sharing his amazing life with us.
