Our school is based in an urban municipality with a population of more than 100,000 people, surrounded by residential areas, major highways and industrial areas. This term, the grounds have taken a break from being a school and have emerged as a “wilderness” campsite. A hosepipe becomes a mountain stream, a cemented area acts as a huge rock suitable for lighting stoves. The surprise of a wild rain storm as we “accidentally” forgot to turn off the garden sprinkling system; huge jets of water careful aimed at the group and our tents putting students under pressure to cope with wet weather, keep clothes dry and protect equipment. This has become the setting for our Duke of Edinburgh expeditions.
