Gold DofE training weekend 10-12 November

The Year 12 Gold DofE group headed off for their first weekend of training to the Brecon Beacons on 10 November. 

Their first task was a real test of teamwork -  to cook a meal for the group on Friday evening.  Quite a challenge when you are cooking for 33 people!

The rest of the weekend involved a micro-navigation day, first aid activities, fitness training and group activities. 

With strong winds and snow on the top of Pen-y-Fan it certainly tested out everyone's resilience and ability to cope in challenging conditions.

Ms Jane Fox, who led the expedition, said, 'The group were a pleasure to take away and I look forward to future training sessions in the spring.  A big thank you to Dave Camm, Heather Ridley and Harry Cornish for giving up their weekend to make this expedition possible.'
