I wanted to send my congratulations to the students for their efforts during this exploration, as well as for their efforts with their Award over the last year. They have finally made it – working towards the final sections of the Award. I was extremely impressed with the way the students worked together to make their key navigation decisions, set up their camp and cook their meals. They were totally independent and increased their abilities to problem solve, completing their exploration goals.
Overall, we walked over 50 kilometres across the three days in various types of terrain. Students also coped with four seasons in a weekend; from freezing fog, some snow, drizzly rain and finally sunshine. I have loved working with the students, they are extremely respectful, helpful and really care for each other, as well as the natural environment. Well done all!
