Congratulations to our 44 Year 10 and 11 pupils who recently completed a 2-day hiking, navigating and camping expedition as part of their Duke of Edinburgh International Bronze Award.
Over the past year, these pupils have been working hard to develop the necessary skills and teamwork to complete this challenge. And they did it! They created their own routes, devised their own meals, and worked independently from their teachers throughout the weekend to safely hike 25 km or more across the terrain.
We were impressed by the resilience and determination shown by our pupils during this physical and mental challenge. Despite hot days, windy nights, and tricky navigation, they rose to the occasion and demonstrated their problem-solving skills throughout the trip.
Completing the Duke of Edinburgh International Bronze Award is designed to challenge young adults and take them beyond their comfort zone. Our pupils embraced the challenge and made great memories in the process!
We're sure there will be a few aching legs, sore feet, and tired pupils, but the sense of achievement will make it all worth it. Congratulations again to all our pupils who took part in this amazing adventure!
