On the 13th to the 14th June, a group of Year 10 students successfully completed a 2 day hike and 1 night camp in the Yanqing hills, north-west of Beijing. This was to allow the students to qualify for the Adventurous Journey part of the International Bronze Award.
The route was up and down hills and sand dunes and past an area that has film sets used for movies. The team saw a company of Chinese soldiers who had to complete their army exercise and stopped for a while because it was interesting to watch.
All this the students did while carrying 60 litres rucksacks. The students worked well in their teams, showed great enthusiasm and were a credit to themselves and the school.
A big thank you to Mrs Usher and Mr Alles who helped supervise the weekend.
