Congratulations Compass Award Students – you have completed your exploration day in your local environments. Both Level 3 and Level 4 students were able to get outside and complete some camp craft and navigation skills. It was great to complete some practical experiences, not only developing enjoyment, but also challenging some students. All students were excellent, they embraced all of the activities and worked very well supporting each other, which is one of the many qualities that the Award thrives on building.
The students walked and managed their equipment and route for their extended hiking experience for four hours. Most covered 10 to 15km which is amazing for the Level 3 and 4 Award categories. I would like to say a particular well done to the students as they have had to prepare and complete these activities independently as we have been coming out of our lockdown. It is great to see all the photos of people’s journeys. I wish the students good luck with their extended hikes from home and look forward to hearing their stories on our WebEx meetings.
It is great to see the kids getting back into the outdoor environment!!
