12 intrepid students tackle their final Duke of Edinburgh Bronze International Award expedition

covering a distance of 40km on foot, carrying everything they will need for their weekend away on their backs.  Yes, that’s right! 

This is a self-sufficient trip, being unaided by any forms of electronic GPS devices or mobile phones. 

They must carry their tent, sleeping bag, food, cooker, spare clothes, and in this case a light-up Frisbee!

We set off from school at an early 6:00am on Saturday and made our way to the forest for a 9:30 start of a 21km hike.  Though the two groups of students found the first day a bit of a struggle with map reading as some route signs had been removed, they ticked every box in the handbook to pass the expedition with flying colours as they stayed together, made group decisions and got themselves back on trail without any issue, to complete the first day if only slightly behind schedule. 

This encapsulates everything the International Award is designed to do, and something many trips will not face even on their Gold expedition.  That evening tents were pitched, pots were boiled, food was eaten and Frisbee’s were thrown, with most students asleep by 10:00pm!

After a cool and restful sleep they woke up at 6:00am on the Sunday to start the second day of their trip, with a circular route starting from the Forestry Commission.  The second day must have been fueled by visions of proper beds as both groups hurtled around the route finishing looking tired but proud of what they managed to achieve.  It was a great feeling to let them know they had successfully completed their Bronze Expedition on the Sunday.

It was a pleasure to see our students walking, talking and working together over the two days.  We should be very proud of these 12 students who are completing an award which was founded over 60 years ago.  Congratulations!
