DofE Silver Practice Success

Kinver High School took seven Year 10 students took to the Long Mynd in Shropshire this weekend for their Duke of Edinburgh Silver Practice Expedition.

Mr Fox, Head of Sixth Form, said: “Lola Meyrick, Ellie-Mae Goode, Lauren Humphries, Izzy Taylor, Alice Rumble, Mia Thornley and Dan Wood were outstanding throughout the entirety of the weekend. They led the way with their navigation and hiking skills, but also set a wonderful example to others with their considerate camp craft too. They were a joy to work with, and I’m very confident that they’ll flourish on their Final Expedition in July if they can repeat their successes from the last three days!”

Well done to Ellie-Mae, who danced in a Charity dance event held at Kinver High on Friday evening before joining the DofE team. She then returned from the DofE expedition on Sunday to take part in the rehearsals of our ‘Charlie and Chocolate Factory’ production, which takes place this week.
