Success for Duke of Edinburgh Students
Over this past weekend, 11 Tupton Hall students enjoyed two warm sunny days of walking, and one very cold night of camping, in pursuit of their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award.
Anna Stevenson, Amy Barnett, Emma Dando, Rae Griffiths, Bethan Roper-Jones, Eben Mellor, Adam Inskip, Jack Whitmore, Aidan Paget, Jack Martin and Dan Knowles all successfully navigated themselves between their starting point in Baslow, their camping spot in Stanton in the Peak, and their finishing point in Ashford in the Water.
Lucky enough to remain dry for the whole weekend, both groups maintained high spirits, and indeed could be seen singing and dancing their way through even the most challenging terrain. They were unsupported throughout, carrying all their own food, camping equipment and water and should be rightfully proud of their achievement.
Well done from all at Tupton Hall!
