Between Friday 4th June and Sunday 6th June, a group of 36 Year 10 students successfully completed a 2 day / 1 night hike and camp in the Huang Hua Cheng Great Wall area as part of their Duke of Edinburgh’s International Bronze Award.

The route was up and down hills, through wooded areas and valleys, including sections on the Great Wall. The students, in groups of 6, had to orientate their way along a route by using maps, a route planner and a compass. All this the students did while carrying heavy 60 / 70 litre rucksacks. The students showed lots of stamina, motivation, enthusiasm and had to endure the heat of June. They also worked well as a team and were a credit to themselves and the school.

A big thank you to the Insight Adventure team and the BSB staff – Mr Chris Planchant,  Miss Helen Bramley, Mr Rob Khan, Mr Paul Readdy and Miss Rosalyn Thomas for assisting in the running of the weekend camp and hike.
