ICHK students are celebrating success in a climbing league against other Hong Kong schools.
Thirteen students from the secondary school took part in the first round of the mini league this week, competing against six other international schools and over 40 climbers in total.
Fedoria Wong won the U14 girls category and Seth Thomas, Ettore Perri and Jayden Samarasekera took second, third and fourth places in the U14 boys category.
Students are taught climbing techniques at school, as a means to develop resilience and grit.
This is just one of the many ways that they are carefully challenged out of their comfort zones and tested on their resolve.
Challenges may be in a sporting setting, on the school bouldering wall or in the last stretch of a 10km run.
It is in these situations that students develop the ability to face down their fears, and dig deep into reserves of spirit and energy.
This is a mindset they can then transfer to the rest of their lives, whether it is dealing with exams or any of the daily challenges that they will encounter in the world.
We look forward to seeing our students continue to show a growth mindset and achieve further success on the climbing walls.
