Saturday 8th December 2018

Egglescliffe Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award students finished their training walks with a foray into the wilds of Richmond this week to complete their practice walks for 2018.

Saturday’s day walk, the final episode of a series of day walks which form part of the programme of training offered by the Bronze Award through Egglescliffe School, consisted of circular route beginning and ending at Round Howe on the outskirts of Richmond, taking in amazing scenery and the historic sites of Richmond race course and castle.

The students, who are completing their practice and assessed expeditions in the new year, used this final day walk to gain some independence from their leaders and navigate their way around the route working as a close-knit team. Students worked hard in very cold and blustery conditions to ensure that they walked closely to their planned timings, and improved their communication to ensure they solved problems together and all agreed on their next steps.

Students were lucky to have continued support from Mrs Higgins, Mrs Wilson, Mr J Morrison and Mrs Ward, as well as some of our lovely parent volunteers, who have consistently stepped up to help deliver this vital training opportunity to our students.
