On Sunday September 6th students from year 12 who undertake their DofE expeditions this month had a training day on the School Sports fields. This was an opportunity to practise skills that had only been taught in the classroom and to remind them of some of the key points they would need for a successful expedition.
The weather was a little gloomy as the tents were pitched but it became very warm as the day progressed. All students cooked their own lunch and by the time the tents were put away at the end of the day it was very hot, one of the staff even had a sunburnt head.
The day was a great success and our students are ready to complete their practice expedition this coming weekend.
