The weather was HOT, but that didn't stop 60 of our students completing their Bronze Assessment last weekend. The students completed their assessment in their expedition groups over the two days from Fyne Court and Combwich. They each carried their expedition rucksack, navigated the planned route, used a compass, walked as a group and demonstrated their campcraft skills when back at school by erecting their tents and cooking a meal together.
Throughout the heat and humidity, the students learnt a great deal about themselves and their peers as well as showing great resilience and determination. The challenge of the expedition is not just physical but emotional and mental and all students embraced the “spirit of the adventure” in true DofE style.
A huge thank you to the staff who gave up their time on the weekend to support the students.
Well done everyone!
