What a weekend as our first ever D of E students undertook their practice weekend. Undaunted by some awful weather on the Saturday they learnt the art of map reading, compass, tent care and all the skills required for their assessment expedition later in October. The way they worked as a team, listened, learnt and did not 'moan' about the awful conditions was truly impressive. On a much sunnier Sunday they did their practice walk independently and finished on time! Well done all.
