S5/S6 Duke of Edinburgh Expedition – September 2013

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a programme designed to increase team-building and individual skills for young people. It’s an excellent achievement to have on a CV and also gives you the chance to step out of your comfort zone whilst having some fun.

5th and 6th year pupils are just back from spending the night in Aviemore, taking part in the final chapter of our long- awaited award. Yesterday, pupils arrived in Aviemore and spent the evening walking along woodland paths and hills. Eventually we made it to our camp for the night and set up just in time to dodge the torrential rainfall overnight. Despite a few unfortunate casualties, lost sense of direction and lots of soggy clothes and rucksacks, we made it home. Finally!
