12 year old Long Close pupil Lauren one of youngest people to climb Mount Kilimanjaro

Written by: Long Close School

We would all like to congratulate Lauren Sharma on and her incredible achievement in climbing Mt Kilimanjaro. What makes the feat all the more astonishing is that she is a relatively inexperienced mountain climber and she is only in Year 8! Great determination and courage were required for her to make it to the summit and we are all delighted that 9 days of climbing allowed Lauren to achieve a goal of which she will be forever proud. Well done Lauren! Here she is with her certificate recording that she made it to the summit ‘Stella Point’ which is 5756M high! (nearly 1000M higher than Mt Blanc!). Wow!
