This year has seen us successfully run Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards across Year 10, Year 11 and Sixth Form. We had a total of 54 students enrolled at various levels and we ran a total of 8 expeditions this year!
The students dedicated a total of 754 hours during their respective volunteering section of the Award. These hours were made up by the students taking on numerous environmental tasks and performing a Coastal Beach Clean project. These activities were undertaken during the coldest months of the year and required resilience, determination and lot of physical effort!
The skills section of the award saw our students complete a basic outdoor first aid course and learn important outdoor skills such as navigation, map reading, nutrition and menu planning, cooking outdoors, rucksack packing and erecting tents in preparation for their expedition.
For the physical section our Bronze students undertook weekly gym sessions, whilst our Silver and Gold students embarked on weekly walks in the local area after planning their own routes.
We must not forget to mention once again our amazing trip to Buckingham Palace to celebrate our Gold Award holder Aaron!
We are extremely proud of the effort the groups have put into their Awards this year and hope you enjoy looking at a selection of pictures from their expeditions this year.
WELL DONE ALL !!!!
