13 Oct Year 10 Bronze D of E
I spent a perfect weekend with nine students from the Year 10 Bronze D of E group on 29th and 30th September. These students have just started out on their expedition training and went on an overnight training camp at Danbury to practice camp craft skills (putting up tents and using camping stoves) and being introduced to map work and navigation. The group were excellent company and responded really well to their training. They followed all the advice and instructions. I am really looking forward to seeing them progress through to their qualifying expeditions and seeing them gain their Bronze awards.
A big thank you to all the students involved for their excellent behaviour and enthusiasm: Silviu Ionescu 10A, Klaidas Runele and James David 10D, Jack Waiharo and Lewis Golby 10E, Iretomiwa Ajala 10F, Logan Grain 10G, Luke Craigie and Shanise Garner 10H. I would also like to thank the staff who so generously gave up their time to accompany the trip and without whom the trip would not have been possible: Mr Kilminster, Ms Davies and Mr Hill.
