Duke of Edinburgh weekend

Friday 20 April 2018

DofE Bronze assessed weekend commences with over 100 students from Woodkirk Academy - with great weather the groups had a positive first day! 

All students arrived at the campsite in good time and set up their tents and all cooked their meals on the trangias. Students were in good spirits as they enjoyed the sun and campsite atmosphere. Hopefully after a good night's sleep they will be ready to kick off their final day on expedition.

Day two and the bronze assessed students set off from Silkstone Scout Camp back to Penistone railway station. Due to the numbers of students, some took the blue route and others took the pink route! With great weather and determination the students made it back and successfully passed their DofE assessed expedition!

We look forward to you all signing up for silver next year!

The silver expedition group set off on day one of their practice expedition 60 year 10 students all ready to embark on the walk from Penistone railway station to the campsite at Silkstone. All members of the groups arrived safely at the campsite and set up theirs tents and began cooking on their trangias.
Hoping the rain kept off, Eleanor was heard saying: “I’m not a fan of tents,  I’m more of a bed kinda girl”!!!

The silver expedition students set off on day two; a very competitive and determined year group are the year 10 silvers - with the first group arriving back in record time - we weren’t at all surprised!

These Year 10s are proving to be a very good bunch of DogE students who are sure to pass with flying colours in June when they do their assessed expedition in Derbyshire!
