“There is more in you than you think”
The motto and spirit of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award was in full force during the Silver Award final expedition this last weekend. Eight Grade 11 students completed the final part of their Award – a three day expedition through the foothills of the Allgäu Alps.
Perseverance, team work and strength of character were put to the test – as the limits of the comfort zone were pushed through really adverse weather conditions – two days and nights of heavy rain and even snow. The third day the teams were rewarded with sunshine and glorious views of the freshly snow-covered mountains, crowning their fantastic achievement.
