Year 10 pupils completed their training expedition in the Quantocks last weekend and all of the groups completed the routes efficiently and enjoyed the experience. The routes crossed and then re-crossed the Quantock Hills with an overnight camp at Holford. As this was a first experience of back packing several of the pupils brought luxury items which make their rucksacks heavy, hopefully on the final expedition they will be more selective in deciding what to take.
The final expedition for Year 10 is on Exmoor during the weekend 13/14 June. It is hoped that before this trip most pupils will be able to get the service, physical recreation and skill sections signed off by their supervisor and upload the evidence to eDofE.
