Year 9 students were put through their paces on their practice Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Expedition this weekend, by Mr and Mrs Buckby and their team from the Guisborough Youth Club. Students started out at Kildale, in the beautiful North York Moors, and took a long journey that included an ascent of 320m Roseberry Topping!

This was an important opportunity to prepare for ‘the real thing’ by both trekking and camping. Great weather certainly helped, and morale and focus remained thoughout. Students were able to navigate well, having planned their routes, they also prepared their camp site and cooked meals, and at least some sleep was secured overnight! Thank you to colleagues from Guisborough Youth Centre who have been leading training sessions at after-school Enrichment, and organised the ‘behind the scenes’ logistics, and supervised at the event.Thanks too for Mrs Waites for your liaison and time spent too!

We are delighted that Guisborough Youth Centre colleagues have been able to take over the lead on providing these opportunities, for even more students this year, where we have for the second time, Year 9 attempting Bronze. We hope some will make it to Gold by Year 11 too.

Such overnight residentials count towards Pledge 3, of our ‘Pledges’ to achieve before University (it is 7 to go to the Year 11 Prom!) but of course, it is the experience that matters. Such events last in memories for a lifetime, and challenging oneself builds resilience and confidence too!
