We are thrilled to share the incredible accomplishments of our Duke of Edinburgh groups! Over the past few weekends, they demonstrated exceptional navigational skills during rigorous training days, highlighting their resilience and dedication to personal development.
The past two weekends have been busy for the CTA DofE unit, starting with a Map & Compass training day for our newly recruited Bronze pupils. This was followed by a second weekend of Map & Compass refreshment with our Silver pupils. A warm welcome to Ben, Y10, a direct entrant to Silver, who showcased impressive skills. Yanto, Y10 also discovered a ‘Smile Rock’ and, in the true spirit of CTA Community, re-hid it for someone else to find.
Mrs S Pickin, Duke of Edinburgh Lead, expressed her admiration for the endurance displayed by these remarkable pupils. “In the face of challenges, our pupils have exemplified true determination and grit. Their commitment to the Duke of Edinburgh program is a testament to their character and resilience,” she remarked.
After these two weekends, all the leaders at CTA are eagerly looking forward to the upcoming season of expeditions. Let the adventures continue!
We are also excited to announce that our pupils have been honoured with certificates from the Duke of Edinburgh Award. This recognition reflects an impressive 858 hours dedicated to the physical section between April 1, 2022, and March 31, 2023.
