Silver Expedition

Silver DofE Expedition

During the Easter holidays, Year 11 and Sixth Form students braved the cold weather to complete their Silver DofE Expedition in the beautiful Forest of Bowland.

All students coped very well with their heavy rucksacks and cold overnight temperatures, but the daytime warmish sunny and mainly dry weather was appreciated by all, especially as it was so unexpected.

Congratulations to those girls for whom this was their assessed expedition; they showed improvements in navigation, organisation, campcraft and teamwork.

For the rest of the students, this was their practice expedition; their first experiences of a 3 day Silver expedition, which is much more challenging than Bronze. They also coped well, working together to keep morale high and showing great determination and persistence, even when their feet were sore.
