Duke of Edinburgh Silver Training

Mr Lawrence: Last weekend the Year 12 Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award students completed their training expedition in the Chilterns. We were very lucky to have some lovely sunny days although the students found the two nights sleeping in a tent to be cold and uncomfortable.  Students did very well to carry their equipment for the three day expedition and despite blisters and getting lost all four groups made it to the finish having learned lots of lessons ready for the final assessed expedition to the New Forest in June.

I have been very impressed so far with student’s energy, self-discipline, commitment and  capacity for teamwork as they complete their Silver award and I am sure they will continue to push on to ensure they not only pass their expedition but also do well in their volunteering, skill and physical sections of the award.
