Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Practice Expedition
On Friday 3rd of May our merry band set off from Kingswells to walk back to school, a distance of 6km. We were expecting the weather to be wild and interesting with a touch of hail. As it turned out the weather was more than kind and we had an absolutely fabulous day. The hail did come but only once we were safely back at base with a nice cup of tea! The whole class were amazing, not one grumble, no sore feet and everyone managed to cook themselves a tasty lunch although Barry’s pudding of Mars Bar followed by half a tin of sweetcorn might not be to everyone’s taste! A huge thank you to Toby from Duke of Edinburgh for supporting us and a very huge well done to all the pupils (and staff) in Howes Hoose for their achievement. Next stop Wiston Lodge on the 12th-14th June for the final push towards our Bronze Award.
