          Duke of Edinburgh's Silver expedition

          DUKE OF EDINBURGH

          Day one of the Silver Duke of Edinburgh assessed expedition was a successful one! All students managed to navigate themselves from High Bradfield through to the campsite at North Lees. 

          The terrain on day one was hilly and the temperatures were warm - it proved a challenge but all students overcame this and were soon cooking their tea on the trangia stoves back at the campsite. The midges came out in droves once the sun dropped and this got us all in our tents ready to set off nice and early for day 2!

          To be continued...

          Final day of the assessed silver expedition kick started early with some groups getting up and off at 8am!! 

          Keen to get home, all groups did exceptionally well to keep on going in the humidity and with the exhausted legs and aching shoulders! All groups successfully made it back to Hayfield in great time and should be very proud of themselves for their achievements
