Practice expedition a successPosted on: May 16th 2018
Four groups of Amery Hill School students spent the weekend navigating their way around the countryside near Alton as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award. They survived overgrown paths, muddy tracks and a spell of heavy rain which made life in the campsite a little damp. Thankfully the Sunday morning was sunny and warm and they were able to dry out the tents before setting off for Day 2. Some heard a cuckoo on their quest whilst others saw buzzards, Red Kites and deer and an owl joined the dawn chorus at the campsite. To their credit the youngsters all survived to tell the tale and are brimming with confidence for their final expeditions next month.
