Staff and students were off campus for their silver Duke of Edinburgh Award practice. They went for a long waterfalls walk around Ystrafellte (a small village in southern Powys, Wales, in the Fforest Fawr area of the Brecon Beacons National Park) on Wednesday. The students hiked for three days and camped out. Part of the experience included camp craft, navigation and group management. They are planning on completing their silver by the end of the year.
