Teamwork shines through on the DofE Bronze Expedition
Following many months of training, planning and preparation, fifty girls from Year 10 set out to navigate their way around the beautiful sunny Hertfordshire countryside on their Bronze expedition. Groups were supported by staff and volunteers, who ensured that they set off properly equipped and ready for the challenge. Each group walked a total of 30km carrying all of their kit over the course of the weekend; camping overnight, pitching their tents, cooking their planned meals on Trangia stoves and listening to the sounds of Muntjac deer, owls and foxes in the night. An evening campfire was enjoyed by all, and spirits remained high despite some rain on Sunday morning. All groups demonstrated great determination, supporting each other and working together to achieve the expedition section. This, combined with their successes at volunteering, physical activity ad developing skills, means that the girls have successfully achieved their Bronze Award. Huge congratulations to all!
