Bronze Duke of Edinburgh training

February 6, 2018 9:29 am

Bronze Duke of Edinburgh participants are now looking forward to summer expeditions in the Cotswolds and the Gower Peninsula following last weekend’s expedition skills exercise on campus and in the local area.

The adverse conditions on Saturday nevertheless provided excellent training in the need to wear correct kit when facing the unpredictable British climate! Pupils received training in First Aid, enacted an Emergency Scenario and took part in an orienteering exercise involving distances and bearings.

On Sunday morning it was great to see marvellous weather, and six teams of participants set off on circular navigational walks either from Coaley Peak or Uley in the cold but sunny conditions. Each group was given instruction by a member of staff and I am grateful to  Mrs Larkin, Mr Waller, Mr Hudson, Mrs Stephens-Mikesch, Mr Clements, Mr Helsby, Mrs Evans and Mr Liam Mclaren for all their input, whether prior to or during the weekend.
