Annabel H, Prep 5 entered a competition on Instagram to win a telephone call from Kenton Cool from the South Pole and was chosen! Her winning comment was:
“You inspired me to take up climbing, which is so much fun and last year I abseiled down a 50m waterfall in Scotland. I am now doing my school project on you and to receive a phone call from Antarctica would be amazing!”
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 the expedition was postponed, however, Kenton still agreed to do a video call and speak with Annabel and the rest of Prep 5.
Kenton Cool is one of the world’s leading high-altitude climbers and also a highly engaging and inspiring motivational speaker. He has successfully climbed Mount Everest fifteen times.
He had some fantastic facts and stories to share and the pupils had the opportunity to ask some questions at the end of the session.
