Last Sunday 25 Silver Duke of Edinburgh students spent a whole day on the School Sports Ground refreshing their training, and preparing, for their Practice Expedition which will take place in the Lincolnshire Wolds from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th September 2013, and their Assessed Expedition in the White Peak from Saturday 28th to Monday 30th September 2013.
Students spent time practicing putting up their tents, brushing up on their First Aid Skills, refreshing their Navigational Training, talking about their Expedition Aim and ensuring their rucksacks were packed and fitted correctly.
Lunchtime consisted of cooking and eating their own hot meal using their trangias.
During the day all groups were given a pre-expedition check by the Assessors who will assess during their Expedition in the White Peak. Both Assessors confirmed all students were ready for their Expedition. All we need now is for the sun to shine!!
