DofE Practice Day Hike

12 Carisbrooke students took part in a practice day hike for their Duke of Edinburgh on Sunday. This entailed them practising navigation, cooking and putting up tents… all to varying degrees of success.

The weather could not have been better for the expedition on a sunny day with a slight chill in the air. Unfortunately, the conditions under foot were not so great with two students getting their shoes stuck in the mud as well as Mr Norman falling into the mud, although this did brighten up the students’ day as well!

All in all, the students thoroughly enjoyed the expedition and made some lasting memories.
