Boys Climb Mount Kilimanjaro
Senior Boys Charity

Three Bolton School Boys’ Division pupils recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa and the highest single free-standing mountain above sea level in the world. The group made this expedition to raise money for various charities.

The boys who made the climb were Abbas Khambalia in Year 7 and Year 9 pupils Xavier Jones and Milan Pitalia.

Abbas is potentially the ninth youngest person in the world to have reached the summit, which stands at a height of 5,895m above sea level and about 4,900m above its plateau base, and his parents said that it has been a truly memorable experience for him.
