Duke of Edinburgh update

Forty-two year 9 students set of on their Duke of Edinburgh practice expedition for their Bronze award this bright Thursday morning!  They left in seven groups from the Valley Campus and walked out of the conurbation to join the South Downs way in the sparkling May sunshine. They have journeyed in groups up and down on footpaths to the village of Pyecombe where they are stopping for lunch.  They are continuing to Ditchling where they will camp for the night, accompanied by Hove Park Staff and Bright Expeditions, who are training them in micro-navigation in preparation for their Assessed Expedition, in July.
