Our Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award group, made up of 7 pupils from Year 11, are now underway with the Expedition section of their Award.  Last weekend they ventured out in our local area revisiting navigation skills and learning new techniques around Wiswell Moor and Sabden.  This Sunday they put their skills into action as they took on a practice day walk in the Yorkshire Dales, navigating independently over the limestone terrain from Horton in Ribblesdale to Stainforth, which they completed confidently.  The pupils achieved their Bronze Awards last year and are now enjoying taking on the tougher challenge of the Silver level, which involves completing an expedition in more remote terrain, and over three days rather than two.  Over Easter they will head to the Northern Dales for their full practice expedition and are all looking forward to their adventure.  They are proving to be an excellent and skilful team, and we wish them the best of luck in their challenges ahead.
