These plucky school pupils certainly had a head for heights as they braved a seven metre high climbing wall.

The children from Anchorsholme Primary School scaled the wall when it was brought to the school, on Eastpines Drive, as part of a Healthy Living Week on Friday.

It was just one of a number of activities scheduled for children, to teach them about the importance and fun of health and fitness, including basketball coaching, karate lessons, visits from the school nurse and best of all two rain-free sports days.

And the children thought the activitiy was “the tops”.

Isaac Vanderwal, eight, said: “I found it quite scary but it was fun getting to the top. I would love to do it again.”

Headteacher Graeme Dow said: “The addition of the climbing tower has certainly enhanced our Healthy Living Week.

“The climbing simply took our healthy living week to new heights!”
