From 15th of September thirty one students from Year 12 completed three gruelling days of practice expedition in training for their DofE Silver Award. They camped overnight at Stainton-le-Vale and Nettleton, and hiked around the area with their equipment each day.
The weather was particularly unkind; they had to endure fog, hailstones, thunder and torrential rain. The aim was to perfect the skills of map-reading, campcraft, cookery and team work in preparation for assessed expedition in the White Peak District of Derbyshire at the end of September.
