Duke of Edinburgh students completed their Bronze Award, camping at Abbots Farm, Goathland and canoeing from Ruswarp to Whitby along the river Esk.

The students also set up camp, cooked their own meals, navigated a walk around the area, practised first aid skills and checked health and safety around the campsite.

All this was completed despite the swarm of midges that surrounded our campsite.   DofE leaders A.Pounder/J Gofton and the DofE assessors where full of praise for students who all worked well as a team helping each other throughout the Expedition, the students will now start their Silver award in the new term. Well done everyone!

The regional assessor visited one day and was very pleased with what he saw.  Click here to see his comments.
