Last Thursday our Year 11 pupils set off on their much anticipated Silver Duke of Edinburgh expedition in the Clywdian Range. You can find our more about the scheme here.
The three day Assessed Expedition started from the bottom of Moel Famau, with 42 pupils (in groups of seven) making the steep climb and ascent via Cilcain to Fron Farm where they set up camp.
On Friday morning the pupils were treated to a glorious sunrise, energising them as they set out on Day Two of the tough route.
All the pupils successfully completed the three-day expedition, with the route taking them from Moel Famau via Cilcain and Caerwys to Dyserth on the North Wales coast.
Blessed with dry weather all pupils developed their navigational skills and displayed great resilience over 45 kilometres of hiking and enjoyed each other’s company in camp.
