I would like to remind students and parents that the training days for the DofE award are coming up, the first on Saturday 29 February for Gold and Silver.
The training involves campcraft, emergency procedures, first aid (training by a newly qualified doctor) and route finalising.
The second one in March for the Bronze group happens on Saturday 21 March.
This training is so important to make sure our students are safe while away on their award expeditions. The expedition season gets underway on April 6 for Silver, April 14 for Gold and 2 May for Bronze.
Watch out for reports back on all these events in the next few weeks.
