Duke of Edinburgh International Award Weekend Workshops

May 17, 2016

Last Saturday, the 14th of May 2016, the participants to the Duke of Edinburgh International Award had the opportunity to attend “Impreuna spre Inaltimi”, a series of training workshops at Decathlon Iuliu Maniu. The event was organized by the CADDRU Association in partnership with Decathlon Romania.

The workshops covered five areas of the theoretical training for the Adventurous Journey Section of the Award: First Aid (covered by the Romanian Red Cross specialists), Tent Pitching, Navigation: map and compass, Equipment (including how to pack) and Survival Techniques. With over 60 participants of the Duke of Edinburgh programme attending from various centres in Bucharest, the event was a real success!

Three participants from IBSB joined: Tudor M., Luca O. and Eva S. (Year 10). Eva won one of the prizes kindly offered by Decathlon. We wish all the Duke of Edinburgh participants good luck with their expeditions this summer and hope that they will have exciting stories to tell on their return!
