Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Practice Expedition

23 May

Students from Catmose College took part and successfully completed their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award bronze practice expedition during weekends held on 6/7 May and 20/21 May.   The Bronze practice expeditions took place around the Leicestershire area over a duration of 2 days and 1 night.  This involved at least 6 hours of planned activity each day of which at least 3 hours must be spent journeying by foot.  Teams of between four and seven students walked an average 12-15km each day unaccompanied, self-reliant with an agreed aim. The whole experience gave them laughs, arguments, joy and frustration along the way.  But, by the end, they had better team and leadership skills, not to mention bags more confidence and a rucksack full of great memories!

All of our students are now looking forward to their assessed qualifying expedition in early September, taking place in the Beaumanor/Bradgate park locality. On completion of the expedition students will have acquired many valuable skills such as leadership, teamwork, self-motivation, communication, confidence, consideration and the ability to learn.  After they have completed their assessed expedition students will  give a final presentation of their expedition aim, experiences and achievements to the DofE group.
