Practise Expedition (Gold) - March 2016

Recently, 7 of our Year 12 pupils (Ethan Basso, Gregory Buck, William Douch, Ryan Harding, Alexander Hardy, George Hinton and Matthew Rowlands) completed their Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award practice expedition. This expedition was in the Brecon Beacons in South Wales and spanned the course of 5 days. The expedition involved 2 days of training and 3 days of walking, carrying all food, clothes, sleeping bags and tents required for the duration of the trip across mountainous moorland. Although it was a challenging expedition, the boys say it was a rewarding and enriching experience. The boys are happy with their success and are looking forward to their qualifying expeditions in Snowdonia the French Pyrenees in August.
