Eight of our students returned on Sunday, the 12th of September, from the Adventurous Journey Camp organised in Sovata, by the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for Young People in partnership with Outward Bound Romania.
The participants on the trip had the opportunity to complete their ‘expedition section’ of the Award and join in team building, rope course, climbing, and hiking activities on the Via Transilvanica section of the Gurghiu Mountains.
James Hudson (History teacher) and Joy Murphy (Science teacher) joined the expedition in the roles of supervisor and assessor, respectively, saying the trip was a great success, full of excitement, fun, and an amazing learning experience for all those involved. The students forged new friendships and challenged themselves to be better in everything they undertake, which is one of the reasons we are so keen to encourage our students to participate in this programme.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award Programme is available as a part of the Senior School Club Programme, for students in Y10-13. To find out more about this programme please visit the school website.
