Outdoor Education Opportunities for Students
On Saturday, 1 February, 69 students attended a Duke of Edinburgh training day with Dynamic Adventure at Ivybridge Community College.
The College has 14 teams taking part in the expedition section of their award; 7 Bronze, 4 Silver and 3 Gold. The day involved a range of activities including; First Aid training, using a stove, pitching a tent and navigation. These students will be completing their practice expedition during the Easter holidays.
With the first five training walks under their belts the Ten Tors students are feeling more prepared for the annual Ten Tors event which takes place over the first weekend in May. They have endured some pretty wet conditions underfoot but are proving that determination and endurance is the way forward. There are two more walks and two practice expeditions to go until the actual event.
