21 June 2018

On Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 June, 36 Year 9 students completed their assessed Bronze Duke of Edinburgh expedition. This involved them walking self-sufficiently from Guiseley to Curly Hill in Ilkley on Saturday and then to Bolton Abbey on Sunday. They were not allowed to visit any shops and had to carry all of their camping equipment and food for the two days. The students were excellent and were praised by their assessor for their organisation and teamwork skills. Although very tired, students were very positive about the experience and many said that they enjoyed the expedition section a lot more than they thought they would. To complete the whole award, students also had to complete a practice expedition from Guiseley to Harewood House in April and now must sign off their physical, skill and volunteering sections. Well done to all who took part.
