Silver Award Level Duke of Ed Exploration To Howqua Hills Historic Area

by Clare Rayner

Our Silver Award students were full of excitement when completing our exploration earlier this month. Students completed a three day hike up and down the hills and along the flats, exploring the Cattlemen’s huts, the gold miners’ tunnel and Tunnel Bend. Both groups were amazing, despite challenging conditions with the rain and cold temperatures at the start of the exploration. They demonstrated clear support of each other whilst they were walking and proved to be independent in terms of organizing their equipment, managing their foods and were just a pleasure to be around for the weekend.

These students are a credit to the Duke of Edinburgh ethos and what the Award stands for; being determined, resilient and committed to complete an exploration.

Congratulations and well done Award group - I look forward to reading your reflections!
