Silver Duke of Edinburgh 2016

2016 has been another successful year for the Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award at Sacred Heart with over 40 applicants and 28 Year 10 pupils taking part. Over the course of the year the participants have taken part in a sport, a volunteering activity and they have perfected or learnt a new skill. In June they then undertook a three day practice expedition in the East Sussex area, refreshing their skills in navigation, tent assembly and using trangia cooking stoves. They coped really well carrying their heavy backpacks over large distances. All accompanying staff were really impressed with the four groups and their positive attitudes.

The final expedition then took place around Billingshurst, West Sussex in late June. All teams worked really well together, made it to the end and passed! Well done to all the participants for their hard work.
