D of E Gold Awards at Buckingham Palace

Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Expedition
On Saturday 12th May, many Year 10s embarked upon their first Duke of Edinburgh experience. With our laces tied tight and our waterproofs ready, we set out. Although it was raining the first day and muddy slopes attempted to hinder us, we persevered. Upon reaching the campsite, we set up our tents for the night and began cooking our delicious dinners. Meals ranged from pasta to chicken tikka masala and desserts of hot chocolate and biscuits helped us settle down. On the second day we were allowed to navigate the Chiltern Hills alone and although the task seemed daunting we used our initiative to find the way. Making it back to our starting point was such a rewarding moment for everyone. We thank all the instructors and our teachers for helping us with the skills we needed to endure.
