DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S AWARD - BRONZE EXPEDITION JULY 2018

From September 2017, a group of students from Years 9 and 10 took the opportunity to participate in the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at The Aylesbury Vale Academy. This is the Academy’s first year as a licensed organisation with the DofE, and we are extremely pleased with the progress that the students are making throughout their sectional activities. 

In addition to their Volunteering, Physical and Skills sections, over the past few months students have been working on their expedition section. Students have attended a training day, practice expedition and on the 6th-7th July completed their qualifying expedition. The qualifying expedition consisted of two days walking and aim work with an overnight camping stay at Green Park, Aston Clinton. The conditions during the day were extremely hot and we are very proud of the mature attitude of the groups and the impressive teamwork that they displayed.
