Silver DofE Practice Expedition in Norfolk 2-4 April 2019
2nd April 2019 - Day 1:
The DofE Team arrived safely in their field in Norfolk. They completed their first walk, pitched their tents and cooked dinner. Everybody crowded around the campfire in the evening as the weather had turned quite cold very quickly. At 9pm, everybody was in bed and ready for some rest - We hope that you will all stay warm tonight in your sleeping bags!
3rd April 2019 - Day 2:
After a freezing night with sub-zero temperatures, pupils and staff woke up to icy conditions feeling rather cold. The team decided together that they needed to re-locate back to base (school) for their second night due to the unforeseen drop in temperature. Tents were taken down, and after breakfast they travelled back to Hertfordshire. They cooked their dinner at school and camped in the hall for their second night.
4th April 2019 - Day 3:
By 8am, everyone was up. Breakfast was cooked and lunch prepared at base. The Silver DofE team then set off for their walk and had lunch at the lakes. They spent the afternoon evaluating their two-day practice expedition and discussing necessary changes and alterations for the qualifying expedition later in the Summer Term.
Everyone worked hard and well as a team. They are all looking forward to the qualifying expedition now!
