Over the weekend year 9 fully embraced their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh training day.
Students learnt a range of new skills such as first aid, navigation, stove safety and how to safely put up a tent. Students enjoyed a 5km walk to improve their compass and map work and were rewarded with making hot chocolate with their new Trangia skills! Teams demonstrated excellent team working skills and some even formed new friendships along the way. The students were both encouraging and kind to one another, supporting each other when they faced new challenges.
They are all now looking forward to their practice walk on 24th April where they put all their new skills into action on a 12km expedition.
