Participation in the High Ropes Challenge provides the
opportunity for personal development and team building in a safe and supportive
environment. Students operate in small groups with one person completing a high
ropes element while the others form a belay team. All students will be
instructed on the safe use of harnesses, helmets, belay ropes and climbing
hardware as part of this program.
The program is conducted at Gympie East State School by
qualified Barambah EEC staff and is best suited to a full day visit by a single
class group. The course includes elements with varying degrees of difficulty so
is suited to repeat visits.
