A hot weekend for Duke of Edinburgh students
Well done to eighty two Year 10 students who completed their Duke of Edinburgh Award practice bronze expedition on the weekend of the 7th and 8th May, especially as they were walking in unexpected and exceptionally hot weather conditions. The students walked from St Clement Danes School across the countryside to reach their destination point at Phasels Wood Activity Centre, near Kings Langley. The students cooked a meal on arrival at the centre, and set up camp for the night, before completing their return walk back to school on Sunday.
Staff members Mrs Kirby and Mr Taylor supported the students behind the scenes, being present throughout the weekend. They have expressed their gratitude to parents and fellow members of staff, who assisted throughout the weekend, and without whom the practice expedition would not have been possible.
Well done to all the students on completing their practice expedition, and also to all the adult supporters for their help.
We wish the students every success for their actual expedition in June!
