Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award Success!

Bronze award participants completed the expedition section of their award on the 6th and 7th May.  The group have worked hard during their expedition training and practice expedition to improve their navigation and camp craft and approached the weekend with enthusiasm, which was not dampened by the drizzle and low temperatures on Saturday morning.  The group met at Milford to start their route through Cannock Chase to the camp site at Beau Dessert.  The assessors were impressed by the independence and team work shown during both days: Andy Mc Mahon (Stepping Out) “it was very obvious the group had thought about every aspect and applied the training well”.

The group were exceptional and a credit to the school- the expedition was completed to the very highest Bronze standards. Their conduct, support towards each other and respect of the Award was outstanding.  Well done and congratulations to the Bronze group 2017!
