Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award Practice Expedition

Before the half term a group of year 10 students took their rucksacks to the countryside in Pateley Bridge for their D of E expedition. This is the first of two expeditions students must do in order to complete the award. Students trekked towards How Stean Gorge in glorious weather with some making great time whilst others nursed blisters and trotted through later, battered but not beaten. After setting up camp and making dinner it was time spent conversing without technology. The thought of no WIFI on the campsite was too much for some to bear.  Friday brought along rain but the thought  of going home after a restless night’s sleep was motivation enough for most to get the job done. All finished in good time to enjoy some well-earned fish and chips. The assessment expedition takes place in September and I look forward to seeing everyone back to finish their Bronze Award. Well done to all involved.
