As part of our S6 Induction we are giving every pupil in S6 the opportunity to complete their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. Pupils received expedition training prior to the summer break and they should now be working on their Physical, Skill and Volunteering sections of the award.
Starting this Wednesday the 1st of September, we will be running walking expeditions for our pupils. Pupils will be informed of the dates of their expeditions and given consent forms in advance.
Each expedition will consist of 2 day walks of about 10-12km each day. The walks will start and finish at the school and pupils will return home each evening. Pupils should wear comfortable clothing a footwear, including layers to protect from the cold and waterproofs in case of rain. The school has a large collection of equipment that is available to borrow, please contact Mr Richardson or Mr Gillespie if you require any kit.
Pupils also have to cook a meal as part of their expedition, please bring a meal that can be cooked on a camp stove, for example fresh pasta, noodles etc. Pupils have been given examples of meals.
