Silver Duke of Edinburgh Training Expedition

Posted on: 23/03/2022

On the 18th–20th of March, the Silver Duke of Edinburgh Year 10 students completed their training expedition in preparation for their qualifying expedition next month.

Over the weekend, the students learned how to make a comfortable and safe camp, cook their own meals on trangias, map read, route plan and administer basic first aid in case of emergency. The students plotted their own routes for two walks; one being circular, and the other ending in the beautiful area of Denbies Hillside.

Staff in attendance were all impressed with Blenheim students’ determination and resilience throughout the weekend. We wish them the best of luck in the qualifying expedition!
