DofE: Spring Term 1 Update

Last term the Duke of Edinburgh students completed the first 2 sections of their Bronze Award. For their physical section the students went climbing, they learnt to tie knots, keep each other safe and for some, conquer their fear of heights! It was a fantastic experience for all involved. They  also completed the skills section, for this they had to learn how to do something new. The students chose event planning and organised 2 trips for the rest of sixth form.

The students are now braving the cold weather and are out walking every week to train for their expedition in the summer. They will also be carrying out some volunteer work for their final section.
