Duke of Edinburgh Update

Report from Mrs King

Nineteen pupils completed their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh practice walk in the Pentland Hills in Edinburgh on Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd October. They camped in the scout camp at Bonally with many other groups of young people. The weather was terrific during the day but the temperature dropped considerably during the night.

The pupils will be going to the Campsie Hills this week for their assessed walk and will spend the next 6 months working on the other three sections of the award.

  5. The walk was very challenging but overall I had a great time. We had a fab time making all our tasty food and having some freedom at the end of the night to play cards and relax. The instructors helped us a lot and we can now take what they said on board for our assessment next week. 🙂
