Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Assessment Expedition
The Bronze Assessment expedition will take place from Friday 12th– Saturday 13th June 2015. The groups will need to be dropped off at their starting point at least 15 minutes before their start time to enable instructors to check their routes. We recommend that you organise lifts within your groups. The groups are due to start their expedition in Treen and finish at Drift Reservoir by 3pm (see attached maps). Please note that the finish times are approximate. You will appreciate that much depends on the girls’ progress. Please be patient!
The groups should already have all their group kit from their practice expedition.
After the expedition, all group kit must then be returned to us as a group (in a dry, clean state). Any damaged or non-returned items will incur a charge.
The assessment will be carried out by Mrs Goodright and Mrs Sharp, along with other members of staff. No girl is to leave the campsite without permission from an instructor.
If any parent wishes to assist us on the Assessment Weekend you would be most welcome. Please contact us at the school.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
