The Haverford School recently installed a state-of-the-art indoor climbing wall. The physical education, health and wellness, and leadership program faculty and staff completed a seven-hour certification and are ready to unveil the climbing wall to our boys. The wall will host physical education classes, clubs, sports teams, and others looking for cooperative, camaraderie-building experiences. "Climbing is an experience like none other," says Jeff Potter, head of the physical education department. "It requires physical strength, endurance, problem solving, trust, teamwork, and responsibility."
