Duke of Edinburgh Weekend

34 students did their day walk over Saturday and Sunday. This is a walk from Evington Leisure Centre to Houghton on the Hill loop. It is often the furthest some students have ever walked and the first opportunity they get to do some map reading ‘on the ground’. They learn skills like orientating the map to the ground, identifying features from the map to their surrounding area, what to do in a first aid emergency, what to do if they get lost, working out how many paces they do for 100m and taking compass bearings.
