Duke of Edinburgh Award – Gold navigation training
- Published: Monday, 09 March 2015 12:23
On a wet and blustery Sunday morning, preparation for the summer 2015 practice expedition began in earnest, as fifty L6 students boarded a coach and headed to Hayfield in the Sett Valley region of the Peak District.
In their expedition groups, the students navigated their way up and around Kinder Scout moorland plateau and National Nature Reserve, which rises to 636 metres above sea-level at its highest point. The weather conditions certainly made for a challenging day, but some lessons about preparation and pre-planning were undoubtedly learned, and the day was a resounding success for all concerned.
Next up: route planning and map work beginning this Thursday after school in Grayson.
