Expedition Practice for Silver Level Award

Over the first weekend of the October half term, twelve year 11 students undertook their Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award practice expedition. With restrictions in place due to COVID-19, the experience was a little different to what would normally be expected, but the students gained valuable experience that will help then succeed in the assessed expedition in May 2021.

The 37-long walking route began on Saturday at Fyne Court and took the students to North Petherton and Combwich along the Parrott Trail, finishing on Sunday back at Haygrove School. Although the group did not get to actually sleep out (which was probably a blessing as the weather was very wet and windy), they were able to practice pitching their tents and cooking their evening meals together in their groups.

Congratulations to everyone who took part. The Silver level expedition is a challenge and our students showed great resilience in completing the route and preparing their camp. Fingers-crossed that by next Spring, they will be able to fully complete the challenge and camp out in the fresh air in true Duke of Edinburgh style!
