Duke of Edinburgh


It has been an active term for Duke of Edinburgh participants. All three levels – Bronze, Silver and Gold – have been actively involved in planning or participating in their relevant expedition sections.

The Bronze group after successfully completed their expedition training, took part in their practice and final expeditions in South Warwickshire and the Cotswolds. It is excellent to see that the majority have now enrolled for the Silver award; they have formed their walking groups and will be completing their practice and final expedition in September and October.

The Lower Sixth Gold group are to be congratulated for the successful completion of their final expedition in Snowdonia. In recent years the weather in the mountains has been cold and wet – this year they had to contend with walking over the four days in gruelling heat. The assessor praised the teamwork, excellent navigation and good humour demonstrated by the groups in their completion of the challenge.
