Another weekend another Duke of Edinburgh expedition!

This week we are back at Salcy Forest taking the 10km route along the Milton Keynes boundary way to Emberton country park for our overnight stay. Before the final leg to Sherington.

Students are carrying between 10-15kg in their rucksacks with everything they need to survive including tents, cooking stoves, food clothes etc.

A great weekend built on teamwork, resilience and respect for one another!

If you want to get involved in the future contact Mr Street or Miss Burrows in PE.

If there are any year 9 students who still wish to sign up for DofE they have until Friday 12th July. Please see Mr Street or Miss Burrows for more details.
