Outstanding and truly inspirational lecture

Posted on February 23, 2018


Mollie Hughes, the famous adventurer and mountaineer who last year became the youngest woman in the world to successfully summit Mount Everest from both the North and South sides, delivered an extraordinary talk to a packed audience on Tuesday 20 February 2018. We also had the pleasure of welcoming several West Exe students on top of our own friends and associates, all of whom were positively wowed and motivated by her story.

“It was so inspirational,” said one Year 10 girl, “She was absolutely incredible and it was the most amazing talk ever!” Likewise, the West Exe students were raving on the way home about the experience and were concocting their own plans to climb Everest and row the Atlantic!

Our thanks to the Geography Department for organising this very inspiring evening!
