Duke of Edinburgh news.
As students efforts towards the DOE bronze award continue equipment was ordered from the UK to enable the adventurous journey element of the program. Following the arrival of the equipment, A-level students were quick to take the opportunity to practice tent pitching. A few tangled guy lines later the mission was accomplished; students even managed to repack the tents in their rather small carry bags (on their 4th try!). Other year groups will have a go at this task in coming weeks - photos to follow!
