Every Step Matters

Bronze Steps!

During January, February and March, Year 10 students attended weekly after school expedition  training sessions and in teams of 5-7 we planned routes and learnt the vital skill required for the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze expedition.  On 22nd April we started our practice expedition in the Surrey Hills and walked from Gomshall Station to Bentley Copse campsite near Shere, via Leith Hill.  We walked from 8.30-5pm (some groups walked for longer!).  After we arrived, exhausted, at the campsite, we had to put up our tents and cook our evening meal (pasta and sauce).  And then we had to get up and repeat the whole experience all over again on the Sunday, walking to Newland's Corner, this time without the assistance of the teachers!  The following weekend qualifying expedition on the North Downs seemed a little easier despite the blisters (Mathilde and Erin!) and the aching hips (Poppy!).  We all thought the 2 weekends were a great experience and surprisingly quite fun!

Every Stitch Matters

Lottie Ruddle has produced this beautiful bag, which took a total of 65 hours to complete.  The hand embroidery is of a very high standard and reflects the time and effort that Lottie puts into her work across the school.  Thank you for sharing this with me.
