Duke of Edinburgh Award- Bronze Practice Weekend
11 students from Thomas Aveling’s Duke of Edinburgh programme participated in their practice camping expedition in preparation for their later assessed skills trip.
We were graced with excellent weather and an eager group of students and after weeks of preparation in map reading and route planning the group was put to the ultimate test, navigating the Kent countryside.
After 2 days and over 12 hours of walking and around 18 miles covered, topped with the challenge of camping through a very chilly night I can say I am very proud of these students! Well done.
