Duke of Edinburgh!
What is duke of Edinburgh?
Duke of Edinburgh is a life changing award. It looks really good on both your CV and University applications.
To be honest the best part of it all is camping, being in tents, it’s like a sleep over trust us on that. People may think it not actually fun but we had a great time!
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO?
You will need certain requirements to be able to complete the award. You have to spend 3 months (12 weeks) doing a Physical (netball, football), Skill (First aid), and Volunteering. Make sure you do 1 hour per week, then you have to do another 3 months extra for one requirement. You can choose which one you do.
Here comes the fun part you have to do a practice walk and stay over. Finally you camp over for 2 days and 1 night, get an idea on how well you read maps and if you follow the outside rules. (Yep that a real thing!) Also you have to put the tents up and make your own food .
WE EVEN MADE A FEW FRIENDS ALONG THE WAY…
How to survive?
Simple, wear all the straps of the bag and make sure at least one of your team members know how to read a map. When you fall in mud don't roll over, bring extra clothes. Don't bring anything canned, pack as lightly as possible.
Follow rules as you would in school. Don’t push each other even if it as a joke because someone could get hurt.
Seems hard, impossible maybe.
Yeah it's hard work and lots of effort but its all worth it at the end. It’ll make you stand out and be different from other students and you get to see moments like these,
Our experience with Mr. Armstrong and Mr. Mills
Will always be memorable.
‘Take pictures but leave only foot prints!’ –Mr. Mills
‘If you give a man a fish he eats for a day; if you teach
A man how to fish he eats for lifetime!’ –Mr. Mills
