S4 Duke of Edinburgh
Bronze award expedition
Hopefully you are well on your way with packing your bag for your Bronze expedition trip. As a bit of a guide I have attached a check list so that you are aware of what you have packed and what you need to pack. This list is not exclusive, you can pack more clothes than what I have intimated, however when you arrive at the centre you will transfer the clothing and items you will need for your walk into a separate ruck sack.
With regards to food, you can bring items such as super noodles, sweets, chocolate etc. Please do not bring excessive amounts of food as there will be a shop that you can go to for supplies. Also, you need to make sure you are not filling your bag up with too much weight while on your walk. E.g. Cans of fizzy juice, Tins of soup/spaghetti/beans etc.
As a reminder, please arrive at school at 8.15am on Monday 6 June 2016. Please wear the clothes you will be walking in as it will cut down change over time for when we arrive at the centre. When you arrive at school, please wait at the fitness suite fire door. Mr. Low will open the doors so that you can be signed in on the register and so that you can leave your bag till it is time to board the bus.
If you have any further questions, or if you have any requests for kit such as walking boots please email Mr. Low at the address below.
