Year 9 DofE Practice Expedition
Year 9’s first practice expedition to Box Hill was a great success. All the boys gained vital experience which will aid them in their final expedition in the weeks to come. For a Bronze practice, the navigation skills shown by the boys were very impressive and all but one group were able to navigate their way back to the campsite without any issues. Follow the below link for some photos of the expedition.
