FIFTY Year 10 King’s Ely Senior students have successfully completed their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Award Assessed Expedition.

Held over two weekends this month (June), four independent groups of students navigated their way across the Suffolk countryside over two days with an overnight stay at Bradfield Park Scout Campsite, near Bury St Edmunds.

Assistant Director of Outdoor Education at King’s Ely Senior, Martin Bray, said: “The students demonstrated competent map reading and outdoor culinary skills, and maintained their enthusiasm despite the varying weather conditions. Well done to all the students!

“Thank you also to Toby Humphry, Dave Kittson, Katharine Wege, Matthew Bridgman, Ben Smith, Sophie Thorpe, Millie Wickham and Mieke Hougaard for their help and support during the trips.”
