Duke of Edinburgh Training Day

Well done to all the Group Two Year 10 boys who took part in the Duke of Edinburgh training day on Saturday.  The team from Ben Bullen Adventures spent the morning teaching the boys about the importance of safety and identifying risks whilst on expeditions, as well as skills such as how to put up and dismantle a tent, how to use the cooking stoves, and what best to cook for lunch.  The afternoon was spent route planning using maps and getting more information about recording skills and volunteering using DofE.  This was an excellent day with many of the boys now ready and excited about our practice expedition in 2 weeks’ time.
