It was a special day on Friday 4th December - it was the first time all year for our current Silver and Gold groups to meet and complete some training. Despite not being able to go on a hike experience out of school we had an excellent, full on day. The students worked through a range of problem solving and initiative tasks. It was great to hear the ideas suggested by the students and especially the way they meticulously worked through the tasks. They also extended their navigation experiences, not only following maps but also developing their confidence with compass bearings.
As the afternoon continued, the students cooked on the Trangia, completed camp-craft activities and were tasked with solving some first aid scenarios. It was really good to work with the students again and I look forward to our three and four day hike experiences next term.
Well done to all Duke of Ed students – keep logging your hours!
