30 Grade 8 Students Successfully Completed DofE Qualifying Expedition

Just a few short weeks after their practice Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) expedition in Moganshan, 30 of our grade 8 students ventured to Yuyao to complete their qualifying expedition. The Duke of Edinburgh is an international award undertaken by young people between the ages of 14-25 years old all over the world. Highly respected, it is comprised of four different sections, of which, an adventurous journey (expedition) is one.  

 

Here at NACIS we should be extremely proud of the fact that these 30 students successfully completed their qualifying adventurous journeys, displaying resilience, determination and courage.  Over 2 days the students navigated over 30km through mountainous terrain, using the compass and map skills they have acquired in recent months. In addition to navigating the students were completely self-sufficient, preparing and cooking all their food, carrying their supplies and pitching their tents. This weekend was very challenging for the students and their achievement should be acknowledged and celebrated throughout NACIS. 

 

“We enjoyed hiking over the mountain in the sunshine and dancing in the woods with the birds and insects” – Dora, 8 Beech. 

“It was very challenging but overall interesting and rewarding”- Jason, 8 Elm.
