New Rock Climbing Wall!
Posted on June 9th, 2017
A new VERTICAL Rock Climbing Wall was installed in our gymnasium on June 9th! St. Mary's submitted a proposal for this new piece of gym equipment when the Fort Vermilion School Division announced it had some surplus funds and offered schools an opportunity to apply for Priority Funding dollars. We are very fortunate to have received this grant!
Because it is a vertical wall, it meets safety standards, and no specialized harnesses are required. Students feet are never allowed above the red line. There are many games and activities that students can play on this wall. It is also magnetic, so students can play math and word games, focusing on many curricular outcomes, during active play.
