DofE Expedition

Last weekend six Mounts Bay students, Lizzy Smyth,  Kate Miles,  Imogen Forster,  Lizzie Thacker,  Lauren Prisk and Johannes Black, were walking and camping on Bodmin Moor as part of their Silver DofE Award.  The Expedition section of the award tests student’s endurance, navigation, camp-craft and teamwork skills. At Silver level they have to walk for seven hours a day for three days, totally unsupported. They have to carry all their own food and kit for the three days but meet up with a member of staff at scheduled points.

Over the  weekend, Bodmin Moor  provided a range of weather conditions to deal with – mostly wet and windy though!
