A truly international and boundary crossing experience

On the 2-4th April 2019, two groups of bold and adventurous young people have set off for their practice adventurous journey to Javorniky, a protected area that creates the natural boundaries between Slovakia and Czech Republic.

It was a truly international experience, since amongst 10 students we had 9 different nationalities. This journey was also created in cooperation with the Vienna International School who joined us with their teachers and a group of students for their Qualifying Adventurous Journey. Over the course of 3 days we have crossed the borders between the two countries countless times, however the students have crossed and pushed their own personal boundaries as well. Facing discomfort, dealing with inappropriate clothing and equipment that was left behind in Bratislava, students had to be more supportive of each other than they have ever been before. A team can be successful if everyone succeeds and for this communication is needed to, for example, figure out that one person has packed only a few snacks where as the other one had a bag full of food ready to share, to slow down to the pace of the slowest and not to consider it as a failure but quite on contrary, a high achievement in humanity, compassion and teamwork. 

Overall, it has been a very enjoyable trip thanks to all the students, who tried to give their best and to the supportive staff - Mr Linley from BISB and the staff from VIS.

The weather on the day the Gold team has started off their journey was not ideal and several route changes had to me made due the high water level (and the strong currents that come with it) in Danube. However these four (out of original 7) adventurous young people were not scared away by the not so pleasant forecast and set off for their 4 day 3 nights long journey. Along with their instructor from Vodacke centrum, Tomas Lukacovic and staff support from Martin Goffa, they have managed to complete the journey and showed an exceptional team work, support of each other and communication skills throughout the whole journey. 

Since at Gold level the students are responsible to organise the trip all by themselves, hereby I would like to praise Maximilian Mako Y12 student, who has arranged the whole trip and managed the team, finances, communication with the school and external provider throughout the whole process of planning independently. He showed understanding, good leadership skills and high moral values when it came to negotiating, dealing with difficult situations of last minute cancellations. This is just one of the many reasons and many ways, how the challenges of the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award can bring out the best from each of the participants and help them to grow. 

Well done to the team and we are looking forward to hear from their Qualifying Adventurous Journey, which will take place in Croatia in June 2019.
