Last weekend a group of 27 Year 9 Kinver High School students went to Bewdley to complete their Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Bronze Expedition.
During the weekend they walked 24 Kilometres with sizeable rucksacks carrying all of their camping equipment & supplies in hot, challenging conditions. Our students excelled themselves and displayed some excellent map reading skills. They were extremely proficient in cooking two meals (breakfast and dinner), and did almost as well with the washing up afterwards!
The DofE programme helps to develop young people for life and work, with 93% of participants feeling that DofE has helped them to work in a team and 84% feel that they have become a more responsible person.
Mr Wilks, teacher at Kinver High, said: “Our students were absolutely amazing in their attitude. Duke of Edinburgh expeditions always offer a fantastic experience for our students. They were all a credit to our school and we look forward to seeing them on Silver!”
