Bronze and Silver D of E Practice

Both Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award candidates were out at the weekend on their practice expeditions.

We set off early on Saturday morning and, having seen the dire weather forecast, were wondering how wet we were going to get. Luckily for us, though,  the area of North Norfolk we were in had very little rain so all we saw was a few spots and some glorious rainbows.

All of the groups walked and navigated well. They were cheerful throughout and worked brilliantly within their teams. They are really prepared for their assessed expeditions in two weeks time (for the bronze award)  and three weeks (for the silver).

Well done, girls!

Mrs Grove
