What a fantastic day Saturday was. Please pass on my thanks to Marion for making it so enjoyable for us. We learnt a lot, worked well as a team and had a lot of fun!

From Kate
Thank you for having me there at rock school it was a really great day learning how to absail. It was so fun! I learnt so many great skills I had a lovely day thanks for having me! :)
Thanks you really made it quite an experience for me and the scouts. I would love to come back to the Rock School again for another go at abseiling. 
Thanks Archie
Thank you for the opportunity to come to your school and learn some more about scaling cliff faces. Not only have you done this but you have done this a second time, and even the people who had already done it learned a thing or two more. All the staff were friendly and understanding, (about things like heights) and walked and talked us through the process. Once again, thanks, and we all look forward to coming next time!
To rock school, thankyou for teaching us all about abseiling and the safety precautions involved. It was a great experience even though it was the second time that I have gone, thankyou for giving up your time to teach us about skills that I had never thought about and even letting us have a go at rock climbing even though we were supposed to just  teach us abseiling.
Thanks for a wonderful time 
From Sean
2nd Gymea Scouts
On behalf of the scouts and leaders at 2nd Gymea Scouts I would like to say a huge thank you.  The Scouts had a wonderful time and even though they were extremely tired while waiting for their Mums and Dads to pick them up they were very chatting about the great day they had and when asked if they would come back I received a yes please.

Thank you so much for the day and your patience in teaching them about abseiling.  What a fantastic team you have and the Scouts and their parents don't know how lucky we are to have this team and facility in the Sutherland Shire.

Yours In Scouting

2nd Canterbury Group
I attended Rockschool with 2nd Canterbury Scouts and Cubs on Saturday as an "adult helper". I wanted to let you know that both of us had an extraordinary experience which was made possible by the most lovely, knowledgeable, skilled and calm team of people I have ever had the pleasure to meet.
My son, Liam [9] has inherited my anxieties, and very nearly backed out of going over the edge. 
The way that this was handled was an absolute credit to you [and for me was a much-needed reminder of the fact that there really are wonderful people].
I trained as an industrial abseiler in my mid-30's and found myself in Liam's position more than once. With your help he's already a braver man than me.
With our most sincere thanks, and hoping to see you all again sometime,
Simon and Liam



Canterbury Vale District Venturers
The Venturers and its two leaders thoroughly enjoyed the Rock School staff and the very professional way they introduced abseiling to them. They enjoyed the lively, understanding natures of each of the staff members and the way they imparted their knowledge and encouragement. The Unit also enjoyed the location and various equipment on hand to try.
Chris H. (VL)
It was a fantastic day. The Leaders were so engaging and supportive. The venturers all said they had a wonderful time and really appreciated the leaders and how nice they were. I thank you so much for a wonderful experience and I know we will be back.

1st Dulwich Hill
Everyone there was fantastic. So knowledgeable, patient and friendly, and super understanding with all the kids. It was run like clockwork, good fun and highlighted all the best qualities of scouting and scouts volunteers themselves.
Adoni P. (CSL)



1st Wearne Bay Group
The leaders loved how well organised it was and how well you all encouraged the nervous kids to face their fears. The youth have been raving about the abseiling and how they want to go again soon. We all loved it!! THANK YOU.
Vicki M. (Leader)
3rd Summer Hill Group
Well organised with very friendly instructors. Youth felt very comfortable in a short period of time. Thanks team, the youth are already talking about another visit!
David S. (Leader)
1st Alexandria Scouts
We were the only group at Rockschool and so everyone received lots of attention and had lots of drops, all my Scouts learnt a lot and had a great time. Looking forward to coming again in the new year with our Venturer Group and also to do some leader training.
