Duke of Edinburgh weekend


Friday 22 March to Monday 25 March 2019

Woodkirk Academy's 2019 Duke of Edinburgh's Award has record numbers completing the bronze.

Approximately 150 students - almost half of the whole of Year 9 signed up for this fantastic opportunity.

With the first half departing on Friday 22 March and the second half departing on Sunday, it is set to be an amazing weekend of walking, cooking and camping! 

The groups head off on the walk with a member of staff. On arrival at the campsite, the students pitch up their tents and cook their meals on the trangia stoves before getting into their sleeping bags for the night. 

This day is slightly trickier as the groups head off on their own - hoping they don’t get lost and get back safe and sound
