As we begin the official countdown to our June trip (just 3 weeks from now), DCIS held a parents meeting for the Les Martinets Expedition last Thursday. The meeting went very well and parents were pleased with all the training and preparation the students are undertaking.
Last Saturday, 7th May, all the participants had their first trekking work out at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. We started at 10:00am and ended at 12:00pm.
As part of the conditioning and endurance training, all the students had to trek up and down the steep summit trail five times before they could have their break.
It was hard work for all involved but well worth it.
