Practise Weekend - May 2015
Hayesbrook D of E students took part in the practise expedition over the weekend of 2nd and 3rd May. Students had to carry all their supplies independently and began the hike in great spirits. After hiking 16km, relying solely on their compass skills and map reading, they navigated their way at a good pace and reached their destination just as the rain and wind came. On Sunday, the students had to pack down in the wet and walk most of the day in the rain. It proved to be an exercise in resilience and great teamwork and the tough conditions brought out all these skills in the students. Well done!
The assessed expedition is the weekend of the 12th and 13th September. Good luck to you all!
