Expedition Success

Last weekend saw half of year 9 heading into the Yorkshire Dales to complete the Qualifying expedition for their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Awards.  

To pass the expedition critera, they had to complete two hikes carrying all of their gear, set up camp and stay overnight in their tents.

Mr Rodaway, DofE Lead at St Francis Xavier said, "It ended up being a very wet and stormy weekend but we were incredibly impressed with the commitment and resilience shown by the students throughout. 

We were also pleased to be able to finally camp again for the first time since the pandemic and look forward to getting back to more expeditions this coming year."
