An outstanding 90 students from Years 10 and 11 have celebrated gaining their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Awards during 2022. The first expedition back in July walked 20km including the summits of Ragleth, Caer Caradoc and Lawley Hills in mainly sunny conditions. Everyone work independently and as part of a team organising, carrying and effectively setting up camp and then cooking a three course meal on a Trangia.
At the end of September, the second expedition had the great British weather to contend with as they walked from Little Stretton, over Ragleth Hill, heading for Leebotwood. The weather was very wet with 39mph gusts preventing groups going over Caer Caradoc. All students demonstrated excellent team skills in difficult conditions navigating effectively through various terrains.
Congratulations to all!
