London DofE group practice expedition
The London DofE group completed their practice expedition this week and in spite of some very wet conditions staff and students alike had a fantastic time.
We started on Monday by doing a kit check and then pitching up the tents on the school field.
Then we were dropped off at a point on the West Mendip Way so that we could walk back to school, the students walked really well and were very good at navigating.
When we got back to school we cooked our evening meal on Trangia cookers, had some downtime and then everyone slept well after a long day of walking!
On Tuesday morning we cooked breakfast, washed up and packed away the tents ready for another day of walking.
Then we set off for our walk around Weston which was rather soggy but again all the students walked very well and spirits were high!
We were very happy when we finally arrived back at school.
