Last week our adventurous Year 10 students began their practical training for the Duke of Edinburgh International Bronze Award.
In groups, the students have been accompanied by members of the ISCAT team, however the training is led by UMLA Qualified Mountain Leader, Stepan Prindis. Our students benefit from Stepan´s extensive expertise ensuring that they develop their mountaineering skills in a controlled and safe environment whilst developing skills in excess of the standard level required for this award.
Following an intense two day period outdoors, the groups will now spend time preparing their route map, calculating distances, altitudes, times and emergency exit routes.
Challenges are what makes life interesting. Overcoming them is what makes them meaningful!
