JOG students complete DofE Challenge
19th September 2016
A group of Year 9 and 10 students from John O'Gaunt spent 2 consecutive weekends walking, camping and navigating themselves through the Wiltshire countryside as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Challenge Award. Both weekends started very wet, but the sun slowly came through just in time for the students to set up camp. The students had planned routes beforehand and then had to navigate themselves with a compass between the campsites, cook dinner, sleep in tents, cook breakfast and then walk to the end point. All JOG groups did this successfully and we received some brilliant feedback about the individuals from the organisers.
Students involved were: Sian Wheeler, Beth Pollard, Amelie Edwards, Molly Skipworth, Owain Whittaker, Eleanor Angell, Toby Quinn, Molly Lewis, Victoria Ackrill and Dan Sanders.
