The Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award 2018

Share article:

The Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award assessed expedition this year took place in the White Peak area of the Peak District. Participants overcame particularly challenging conditions, facing temperatures approaching 30 oC while carrying all their equipment on hilly routes exceeding 20 km in distance. The determination of the students was hugely impressive and groups demonstrated outstanding teamwork to ensure all members were looked after throughout the 3 day expedition. Accommodation for all was in tents following a brief stay in the beautiful Hartington Hall YHA where groups conducted their administration prior to launching on the expedition. A bright and cheery outlook was the hallmark of the groups and they learned many skills including navigation, campcraft, teamwork and perseverance which will undoubtedly assist them in working towards the Gold Award and in later life.
