Duke of Edinburgh Silver Expedition: 3 Days hiking in the Ciucas Mountains

October 30, 2020

Congratulations to Daria, Fibi, Andrei, Diana, Irina, and Mario who completed a three-day hiking expedition in the Ciucas Mountains. They displayed excellent planning, preparation, teamwork, and resilience in overcoming all the challenges the expedition entailed (from the additional measures related to SARS-COV2 prevention, to navigation in poorly marked areas, and simply finishing 20 km walks and over 1000m vertical ascent per day).

Also, we are happy to announce that the DofEIA programme is growing in our school, as three members of staff were trained as ‘leaders’ last week: Ms Carmen Raducanu, Mr Anthony Varden, and Mr James Hudson. The role of the leader is to mentor the participants and ensure that they have the necessary support to achieve their personal goals in every section of the programme (Skills, Service, Physical Recreation, and Adventurous Journey).

With Carmen, Anthony, and James now on hand to help programme coordinator, Ms Johanna Croci, we have no doubt that our students will continue to receive the best possible support on their Award journey.
