03 Nov DofE Bronze training weekend
Well done to the Year 10 who attended the DofE trip before half term. We showed great resilience given the wet, windy and cold weather since the temperature drop. The students showed great enthusiasm putting up their tents and cooking their meals and continued to stay positive throughout making JRCS proud.
The campsite even congratulated the students on how great they were! For some of our students it was the first time that they had been away from home, but they dealt well with having to be responsible for themselves.
On the Saturday the rain had cleared, we had birthday cake before they set off on their walk as well as a hearty breakfast) and although it was slightly chilly, the sun was out all day and in groups of 5 with some slight help from their teachers, they found their way back to the campsite in record time!
Regarding the trip, some of the students have said:
” My trip was very good as I enjoyed exploring new life skills.”
“Although there were limited food options, I enjoyed working with others.”
“I cherished the moments where we all worked together and cooked good food.”
Miss Lea, Mr Wright, Ms Brookman, Ms Dormer and Ms Matin were all incredibly pleased with the progress that the students had made this weekend, gaining memories that they will take with them into adulthood. Well done!
