The date for the Year 11 D of E Assessed Expedition will be the weekend of the 30/31 March 2019.
The rules and regulations for the Bronze D of E award have recently changed which means that students do not now need to complete a practice expedition weekend in order to qualify for the assessed weekend.
With this in mind we are proposing to hold a learning day one Saturday in the new year (date to be confirmed) within the school grounds to enable students to practice camp craft skills, this will include erecting tents and cooking food on Trangia stoves. We will also practice map reading and route planning.
Further details for both events will be sent in the new year.
