Congratulations on a superb practice expedition for both the Silver and Bronze Duke of Edinburgh pupils. Pupils who participated in the Silver practice expedition showed great navigation and camp craft skills. Their desire to get up early and get walking was outstanding. It was music to our ears to hear them say on the most difficult section of navigation ‘we walked on a bearing as there were so many paths’. Bronze participants have learnt many new skills this weekend – navigation, cooking on trangias, putting up a tent and what not to pack in order to make their rucksacks lighter! W
e are all very much looking forward to the qualifying weekend in Shropshire in July. A huge thank you is conveyed to Mrs Bate, Mrs Allen, Mrs Johnson and Mr Parkinson for making this weekend possible.
