Rockclimbing

(Students will be required to undergo trials and selections before joining this CCA.)
Xinmin Rock Climbing was started in 2008 and is now in its 12th year running. Our belief has always been to develop core values like perseverance and discipline in our team members. These core values are continually emphasised in both training and competition. We also strive to develop teamwork, camaraderie and leadership in our members by providing various opportunities for our students to excel.

 

Our climbers have also achieved exceptionally good results this year. We came in 1st for our ‘B’ and ‘C’ division girls in the National Schools Bouldering Championships. In the National Schools Sports Climbing Championships (difficulty), we came in 1st for our ‘B’ Division Girls, ‘C’ Division Girls and ‘B’ Division Boys as well. Besides competitions, our students also get to climb a natural rock wall once every two years and we will be heading to Thailand at the end 2019.
