Over the weekend, a small but determined team of students completed their Silver DofE Assessment Expedition! The group walked seven hours a day for three days, seeing Exmoor in its true glory. One of their main goals along the way was to compare tourism in honeypot areas to more remote parts of Exmoor. The long weekend started at Dunster and the group headed into Minehead, up onto the south west coastal path. They then came inland to Horner on day one and crossed the moor from one side to the other finishing at Wimbeball Lake on day two. Their final day bought them through several picturesque Exmoor Villages to finish at Williton with sore feet and backs but in great spirits to have completed their assessment.
"We are always so proud of our young achievers and this group of girls were no exception. They did absolutely brilliantly! They will have hopefully had a fab time on their assessment and went home with lovely memories, leaving only footprints on Exmoor as they follow the country code!" - Mrs Clark, Head of Outdoor Education
Massive well done to Natalia, Molly, Manon and Rachel!
