Weekend 15th-16th May 2021
We are really proud of our Year 10 learners who have recently completed their DofE Practise Expedition for their Bronze Award. The expedition took place at Cannock Chase over two days, where despite the tough weather conditions, each team successfully navigated their way around their planned route. This started at Castle Ring on the Saturday and finished at Shugborough Outdoor education Centre (OEC). On the Sunday they walked from Shugborough OEC to Millford Common.
There were check points along the routes where each team was met to ensure they were on track and all was fine. Again, due to Covid restrictions they were unable to camp on the Saturday night but to enable a true practise expedition experience, learners carried a full rucksack during their walk. They also had to pitch their tent at the end of the walk on the Saturday and cook a meal outside.
The distance covered over the weekend was an approximately 16km which is a fantastic achievement for everyone who completed it. Well done!
The assessed expedition for the Bronze Award will take place in June for which we wish them well.
