First Gold DofE Expedition Training Day

On Saturday 7th January, eighteen year 12 pupils started training for the expedition section of their Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award by walking around Afan Argoed. They learnt basic navigation skills such as map orientation, taking compass bearings and pacing distances. Despite the wet and foggy conditions everyone maintained their willingness to learn and the day was a success. A great start to the DofE adventure.
