68 students took part in the Duke of Edinburgh award practice expedition on 29th-30th. The aim of the expedition was to teach students how to map read and conduct a variety of teamwork activities prior to the qualifying expedition next week.
Students went to Dunham Massey scout camp and walked around the local area using maps and compasses. The activities and tasks included a selfie completion with an animal in the background, human knot, yes/no game and tent race. Students have learnt some valuable lessons, like how much equipment they need to carry and how important walking boots are.
They are all looking forward to their qualifying expedition next week.
