Great practice for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award
On Saturday 18 November, 3 teams of Year 10 students explored the Devil’s Punch Bowl, near Hindhead as part of their preparations for their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Bronze Expedition. The aim of the day was to practise their navigation skills and get used to carrying the large packs that will be needed for the qualifying expedition.
The day was chilly and damp, with mist filling the Punch Bowl. There was much needed map and compass practice including taking bearings and relating the map to the ground. All the teams did really well with not too many wrong directions taken! They finished the day in good spirits, despite the long, steep hill just prior to the finish and went home for a welcome hot bath and a cup of tea.
How wonderful to receive this email .... 'I wanted you to know how impressed I was by your pupils at the Old Vic last night. Every single child was very polite, thanking us for moving so they could take their seats. They really were a credit to your school. Best wishes, ...' https://t.co/xXiPazphrl 7:04 PM - 10 Dec 2018
At this time in the term we are turning our minds again to what must be the constant question. 'Are you ready to learn?' #FullPencilCase #DoYourBest #ImpeccibleBehaviour #Listen https://t.co/OCpexobk0f 6:52 PM - 10 Dec 2018
