Duke of Edinburgh Award
Congratulations to the nineteen students at Rugby High who completed the Expedition section of the Gold Award in July. The expedition was based in the Lake District and the three teams had to traverse Helvellyn in heavy winds followed by torrential rain. The planned wild camp at Grisedale Tarn was abandoned as the wind tore down the valley. In very tough conditions spirits sagged and then soared as all paticipants went on to complete the gruelling trek. Congratulations to them all. More pictures can be found by clicking here
The four teams completing the Silver expedition travelled to the Yorkshire Dales. Once again the weather was tricky but better than the practice. The finish in one of the prettiest villages of Grassington, ended an enjoyable expedition.
