Qualifying Expedition - May 2016
On their qualifying expedition, the students had to walk up to 18 kilometres per day, carrying with them all their equipment including tents, trangia stoves, first aid kits, food and clothing. The students have improved enormously from the practise expedition where many teams struggled, especially with the navigational aspect of the expedition.
Team Roadman (which included Jack Brennan, Jensen Moss, Matthew Davis, Charlie Egan, Rocco Jackson, Joe Bass and Leon Washington) went from completely lost on the practise expedition to being able to successfully navigate throughout the whole qualifying expedition. All other groups made excellent progress and passed with flying colours!
