Duke of Edinburgh Practice Weekend in the New Forest

May 15, 2014

Over the weekend of Saturday, 26th and Sunday 27th April, 24 Year 10 pupils took part in a practice weekend in readiness for their assessed Bronze Duke of Edinburgh expedition in June.  Working in teams they had to navigate routes through the New Forest whilst carrying everything they needed for the two day trip.  They cooked their dinner on stoves and spent a very wet and windy night camping in tents in the forest. It was very muddy with all the recent rain but hopefully the sun will shine for June’s assessed expedition.  Well done Year 10!
