    Phew! That was hard work! Carried EVERYTHING we needed for two whole days - food, clothes, cookers, tents, everything - and had to find our way using our maps and route cards (that's directions to you) we'd written ourselves 8 miles each day, while the teachers just popped up every now and then having driven there in the minibuses. 
    39 year 10s had the culmination of 8 months hard work this weekend when they did their DofE assessed expedition, and every single one of them was successful. They walked, camped and cooked in the rain on Friday, but the weather was a bit kinder to them on Saturday. Not only have they done this expedition, and a similar training one a month ago, they have also been doing a skill, a physical activity, and volunteering in the community for the past 6 months. They are truly awesome young people!
