From the 20th to 22nd June 14 of our year 10 students completed their silver IA DofE practice trips. They completed a three day hike in Austria. They had to plan their routes between the campsites they stayed at; they had to work out their timings; and decide which way to go. They all worked hard as a team to improve their ability to use a map and compass to navigate. Also at camp they had to put up their own tent and cook their own food. Again, they worked extremely hard as a group to meet the challenges of the three days.
Mr. Lindley, Mr. Euell and Ms. Statovci are extremely proud of all of the students on the trip for their determination to keep pushing themselves even though they were pushing themselves more than they ever had and they were also so impressed with how much their navigation skills improved.
