On Friday 17th June, the hottest day of the year, we wished luck to Year 9 as they stepped out of Cobble Yard and into their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh weekend adventure. Nearly the whole year group participated which is absolutely remarkable and despite the challenges (warm weather, blisters, interesting map reading, tents …) the joy remained palpable and the activity was deemed a true success. They walked through the local area, South of Wakefield and camped overnight at Woolley Edge. The next day they walked again in the local area, completing a minimum of 12 hours activity over the two days.
All participants did extremely well to complete the expedition considering the gruelling temperatures on Friday. Everyone returned safe and well with memories created and new friendships forged.
