Atlantic pre-Diploma students take part in Duke of Edinburgh Bronze practice expedition at Port Eynon, Gower

Duke of Edinburgh

Students from our Atlantic pre-Diploma course recently took part in an exciting expedition as practice for their Duke of Edinburgh Award. Along with teachers and instructors, students made a start from Carreg Lwyd campsite in Port Eynon.

Students were sent on a navigation exercise along the costal path, allowing them to take in the stunning views and the best of the weather. Returning using an inland pathway to the campsite they set up their tents and helped prepare an evening meal on their trangers. They spent a relatively cold night under the stars and awoke to a glorious sunny morning. They were ready for a walk across the field towards Llandewi and Knelston. This expedition counted as their practice walk for their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. Their assessed walk will take place in the near future.

‘From the person who donated £20, to the person who donated £2000 - thank you. I am extremely grateful and indebted… I will do everything in my power to make sure that the contribution made is going to mean something more…’
