Duke of Edinburgh – May 2021
During May half term Year 9 students worked towards their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze, Silver rand Gold Awards. They spent a glorious time camping, walking and canoeing in Shropshire near the Welsh Border. After setting up camp on our first day students had to practice their navigation skills on a short local walk. Sunday’s walk was more challenging as they had to navigate a 20km walk and cook their own lunch! On their final day they had a wonderful time canoeing on the River Severn. The whole weekend was a real highlight and long awaited return to enjoying the countryside as a Finborough Family.
