Christleton High School D of E

I had a fantastic 5 days with a Duke of Edinburgh Gold Training group from Christleton High School. The weather was amazing and the group did exceptionally well. We spent some time looking at navigational techniques, emergency procedures and I took the boys on their first grade 1 scramble which they loved! They then headed off on their own for 2 nights out in the mountains - which included hiking over both Snowdon and the Glyders. A big well done to Oli, Mouldy, Boz, Gaz, Jez, Oli and Rhodri... good luck in Nepal!
