Duke of Edinburgh Silver and Gold Awards

Duke of Edinburgh Silver and Gold Awards

Last weekend we had a successful training day for lower sixth students working towards the Silver and Gold award. The Silvers focussed on preparation for their expedition which will be on the first weekend of the Summer term, 21 to 23 April. The Gold group planned the routes for their final expedition.

After the classroom session everyone travelled by minibus to the area around Bleadon Hill where they completed a navigation exercise with lunch taken around a campfire as reward.

The weather was kind until mid-afternoon when it started to rain but at least gave an opportunity to test waterproofs.
