Perse students find Gold in the Lake District
Perse Lower Sixth students completed their Gold Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Award expedition in the Lake District.
Over four nights and three days, pupils were challenged with over 40km of mountains, valleys and sheep!
Students used their planning, navigation and physical skills to keep them on track, while outdoor pursuits staff supervised the groups remotely, only seeing them a few times a day to encourage participants to gain a genuine experience of being independent.
Perse DofE Manager Tom Cranmer was pleased with how the pupils demonstrated excellent teamwork.
He said: “I was really impressed with each groups’ resilience. Whenever we met them, they were always in good spirits.”
