Duke of Edinburgh Bronze - Bell Heath Weekend - June 2013

Last weekend 40 students from Year 9 took part in their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh qualification expedition around Clent. The expedition was an opportunity for students to develop as individuals by encouraging them to be independent and to work with others as part of a team. Over the two days, students completed a 24km trek and had to demonstrate essential camp-craft skills. Despite some challenges along the way, all groups successfully completed the expedition and will be presenting their achievements to one another in a couple of weeks' time. Well done to each student for their individual achievements and for maintaining their good spirits despite some wet walking conditions, navigational issues and a few close encounters with livestock. It is the way in which students respond to these challenges when we see them at their best. Even Mrs O'Brien's daughter, Isabel, who accompanied us on Saturday, commented upon how lovely our students were - they are a real credit to themselves.

I also want to recognise the achievement of one student in particular who, as I have heard from her group, went above and beyond the expectations of the Duke of Edinburgh Award and demonstrated a real and genuine concern for the community - well done Alice Evans.

A special thank you to Dan Knight and Chris Pakes from Year 13 for being excellent role models to the Year 9 students, to Kathryn Rymill, a volunteer from St John's Ambulance for helping out on the weekend,  and to the numerous staff for giving up their time and contributing to the success of the camp - Miss Aktar, Miss Browne, Mrs Devlin, Mr Flood, Mrs Jervis, Mr McInerney, Mrs O'Brien, Mrs Righton, Mr Stacey and Mr Thomas, who joined us whilst on a short break from his world travels.
