Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Practice Walk - Saturday 23 March

P0w1awvdw2dngwamea1s

Students aiming for their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award had their first practice walk on Saturday, to build their stamina ahead of their overnight practice Expedition and then the 'real thing' with fully laden rucksacks, food, tents and more! Supported by Miss Alderson, Mr McGuire, Mr Chapman and Mr Harrington.

The Award is a fantastic way for students to challenge themselves, meet new friends, work in a team and learn some basic survival techniques, be in putting up a tent or cooking an evening meal after a long day's trek. Students also learn how to navigate, use a compass, read a map and plan routes. To secure the award they must also undertake voluntary work in the community, and other tasks, and upload evidence to eDofE, an online log.

The route taken by students and staff started in Slapewath, heading up through woods and moorland to Skelton, before heading along Skelton Beck, through Valley Gardens to the coast at Saltburn. It is rumoured some ice cream and chips were then consumed...

All in all a fantastic opportunity, made possible by the support of staff giving up time at the weekends, enjoying the company and camaraderie of our fantastic young people!
