Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh awards

This week, 52 pupils headed up to the Brecon Beacons to complete their Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh assessment walks, with six teams completing Silver over three days and two completing Gold over four. The Gold teams were assessed by an external assessor to ensure that they met all of the 20 conditions of a DofE expedition.

The weather was hot, but the pupils all pulled together really well in their teams and worked hard to achieve the walk. Water and sun hats were vitally important to keep off the effects of heat exhaustion and remain hydrated in the tough and humid conditions.

A top effort by all involved made it a very successful and enjoyable trip, once again demonstrating many of the Mount Kelly values throughout the expedition.
