Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Award Bronze

Eleven students from Years 10 and 11 completed their final qualifying tramp for the Adventurous Journey section of our Bronze Award this term. It was a challenging weekend with a wet Saturday and very muddy tracks but that didn’t deter our spirits and we all rose to the challenge. The Adventurous Journey is opportunity to work as a team and develop leadership skills. The goal is to develop navigational and campcraft skills as well as pushing us physically as we have to carry our packs up some challenging tracks. The sense of satisfaction as we reached our final destination was huge and there was a great feeling of relief.
