Year 9 Duke of Edinburgh - Bronze Award
Year 9 Duke of Edinburgh students enjoyed the sunshine last weekend when they took part in their Bronze Award Training Weekend. On Friday night, the girls learnt first aid skills and spent the night sleeping at school before setting off on Saturday morning, for the first walk of the expedition. They also learnt how to cook on trangias, pitch tents and developed their map reading and route planning skills.
Mrs Smart and Miss Laxton, who led the expedition, were full of praise for the dedication and enthusiasm of the students, as they completed tasks in the hot sunshine. Thank you Mrs Smart and Miss Laxton for giving up your time to support the girls.
