What a brilliant way to end a week! Crew Bronte, along with other crews from C22, set out on their first practice walk in preparation for their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Expedition later this year. Under the guidance of expedition supervisor Kate apHarri Bronte enjoyed a cold, muddy but fun-packed walk around Chatsworth Park. Crew learned how to orientate a map and how to use map symbols and grid references to work out location. In addition, Crew Bronte applied their knowledge of the Countryside Code to respect the environment they were walking in. On top of all they they got absolutely covered in mud!!!
Well done, Bronte!

I was wondering if any of you have any unwanted walking boots (size 3 upwards) that your kids no longer need and would like to donate them to our Outward Bound equipment. Also waterproof jackets and trousers would be appreciated too.
Students are expected to have their own walking boots and waterproofs however it is useful to have spares.
Please could equipment be in good condition so that they will be purposeful to the person borrowing them.
Thank you for your support.
Below are the photos crew leaders took whilst in Wales with the Year 7’s in August…
IF ANYONE CAN – WE CAN!!
“If I had known before what challenges were ahead of us I would have never agreed, but now, if another challenge like this came along, I would love to do it again. I never knew how far my comfort zone could stretch but now I am aware and know a bit more about myself”
“I will always ‘dig deep’ and ‘never give up'”
“I didn’t know the challenges were going to be this hard, but after doing them, I’d definitely do it again”
“I had fun when I did all the activities – I’d probably not be as afraid next time”
Over the next few days parents should receive the letter posted below that includes some reminders and updated information.
We are looking forward to seeing you on Monday!
