Meet Mollie Hughes

Mollie Hughes is a Mountaineer, Adventurer and Motivational Speaker based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

In 2012 Mollie summited Mount Everest from the South side via Nepal.

In Spring 2017 Mollie is planning to return to Mount Everest to attempt to summit from the North via Tibet. If successful Mollie will not only become the youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest from both sides but also the first English woman to do so. We have sponsored Mollie as she is a fantastic role model for pupils and we wish her well in her expedition.  She will be adding a St John Vianney Primary flag to the top of Everest once she reaches the top!!!

The pupils in Year 5 have interviewed Mollie via Skype with their questions regarding her past and future expeditions.  We will all be following Mollie throughout her journey  (literally, as she will be wearing a tracking device) and we will have links to her website where she will be posting regular updates.
