Year 9 Duke of Edinburgh practice expedition
On Friday and Saturday 30 Year 9 students took part in their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award practice expedition.
The group lead by Miss Wallace, Mr Dewer and Mr Davies headed to the Mendips in Somerset for this practice run.
It was a really good trip and resilience was shown from everyone who took part. Students learnt and developed lots of new skills. Map reading, camp craft and team work amongst others. Well done Team 5 who were first to the finish.
Thanks to the staff who gave up their time to run this and also to the volunteers who supported the students. Two more are planned in the coming weeks.
