The Duke of Edinburgh group completed their bronze assessed walks in Auchingillan near Strathblane in beautiful October sunshine. The young people had to navigate their way to the campsite, set up camp, cook dinner and stay overnight.
As part of their assessment, each group has to present the story of their walk, discussing what they learned about themselves, how they would change if attempting the same challenge in future, and what the highlights of the walk were for them. The groups chose different aspects of their experiences to focus on from historic buildings to geocaching. The audience of Partnership Officer, Deborah King, Librarian, Jennifer Macfadyen, and Gillian McCairn and Franny Aitken from Community Learning and Development thoroughly enjoyed the groups’ work.
