Dear Parents, Carers and Friends
I received this update on the progress of the Gold Duke of Edinburgh expeditions in Snowdonia from David Gwillam tonight.
In Mr Gwillam’s words:
12 students from Year 12, 8 male, 4 female
Tuesday: 2 groups traversing the Moelwyns, renowned as one of the most challenging navigation areas in the UK, without direct support, and carrying all their equipment.
1 group training in the same areas with Mrs Wilmore (supported by Mrs Farrell)
Wednesday: 3 groups facing a 1000m climb with kit to the summit of Snowdon, before traversing the mountain to camp.
All students are pushing themselves way beyond their own comfort zone, gaining confidence in teams and self-reliance. Many WOW moments for all involved.
Thanks to Mrs Farrell, Mr Gwillam, Mr Mann and Mrs Wilmore for giving up time to support Lady Lumley's students reach new heights
The picture shows Kenny Inman approaching the summit of Snowdon. Glaslyn in the background with the infamous Moelwyns beyond.
Meanwhile, for those of us left back in Pickering, the builiding work in reception goes on apace. The room is now plastered and nearly rewired (my photograph not up to Mr Gwillam's standard I'm afraid).
