DofE Silver Expedition
One of our Y10 Duke of Edinburgh groups has recently completed their practice expedition for the silver award.
They completed a 3-day walk in the Peak District with 2 overnight camps!
- Day 1 was a challenging walk from Hayfield to Edale via South Head and Rushup Edge.
- Day 2 involved a walk up to Hope Cross then down to Pinedale.
- Day 3 was along the Hope Valley to Hathersage.
It is fair to say we experienced most types of weather over the 3 days including sunshine, rain, sleet, hail, snow and wind. Not to mention waking on day 3 to find tent zips frozen up. The weather combined with a demanding route provided a tough challenge, but as ever our students rose to the challenge and did themselves proud. Well done!
