Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

The Duke of Edinburgh Bronze students enjoyed their second practice walk around Burrator Reservoir. They continued to develop on their navigational skills ahead of their official assessed expedition in just over a week’s time. They now have a good understanding of how to read a map and pick out key points along their journey so they are confident they are going in the right direction! They have one final practice walk before their assessment where they will decide on their aim during their expedition.

This weekend is a Year 9 camp which consists of the majority of the Duke of Edinburgh students, plus a couple of extra keen campers! Although this isn’t Duke of Edinburgh related, the camp will be their final practice of ensuring they are confident putting up their tents in their teams and cooking a hot meal on a trangia. This will be followed by a night navigation around Gutter Tour.
