Posted on: 16/10/2013


Congratulations to the Silver Duke of Edinburgh Group who completed their Silver practice expedition across Dartmoor at the weekend. Thank you to Mr & Mrs Farmer and Mr Baker for giving up their time to support the Silver group in their training over the weekend.

One of the most beautiful weekends in October saw seven Year 11 Great Torrington School pupils undertake their three day Silver DofE walking expedition on Dartmoor. The weekend was one of the best for a while with good walking conditions for their weekend.

Sara–Jane member of the group had this to say “This weekend was our first three day and two night adventure, overall the expedition was 35 miles, and the adventure was fun, beautiful and challenging”.

Mr Farmer was very impressed with the groups organisational, navigation skills and their team spirit throughout the whole expedition. They were a team that worked well together and took everything in their stride. Pupils proved their resilience and determination over the weekend. Well done to you all.
