Duke of Edinburgh Expedition

Over the weekend of September 30th / October 1st, 16 students took part in their bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition.  The students completed over 30km on foot completing a circuit around the Isle of Axholme with an overnight camp in Haxey.  

During the practice expedition earlier in the year, there were several SOS calls following indifferent map reading skills!  However, lessons had been learnt and all groups arrived at camp on time and in good spirits despite the arrival of wet weather.  Tents were put up and food cooked in the oncoming downpour which lasted all night! 

Despite the inclement weather, 10 students successfully completed their qualifying expedition and 3 others their practice expedition.  All worked well as a group to complete their objectives and they had  a good time as a result.
