Year 10 in Complete Bronze level for their Duke of Edinburgh Award 

Saturday 14th to Sunday the 15th April saw eighteen of our year 10 student’s travel to Cannock Chase to complete the expedition part of the Bronze level Duke of Edinburgh award. The students had already planned their own routes in their group and had to carry all there belongings with them so they were self sufficient.

The Yellow group said:

“The Duke of Edinburgh was a great experience filled with teamwork and tiredness.’ ‘This experience was a HUGE challenge but we managed to pull through, even after being chased by a dog!”

Green group summed up the experience as:

A test of all our training which we have being doing at our Wednesday night meetings. As we walked we had to photograph and look at various Cannock Chase woodland. The expedition was great preparation for our next challenge when we go on to the silver award.”

Members of the Purple group comments were:

"Even though the Duke Of Edinburgh expedition was challenging, we all worked as a team and pushed ourselves to stride on so that we could reach the finishing point and gain our bronze award. I am considerably proud of myself!" - Saffron

 "I found the Duke of Edinburgh expedition very challenging physically and mentally but I had fun and feel proud of myself and my group for what we have achieved." - Katie

 "I think we all found the Duke of Edinburgh expedition a lot more difficult than initially anticipated. Despite this, each group managed to complete it and, even with the challenges faced (both physically and mentally), enjoyed the experience and are glad that we can now say that we persevered to finish." - Kim
