Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Silver Expedition!
A triumphant group of Year 11 students arrived back in Kathmandu on Sunday after completing their Silver International Award Adventurous Journey. Although their legs and backs may have been a little weary, spirits were high as they reflected on their achievement.
Unlike any tea house trek, the students had to remain self sufficient for 3 days. Carrying full packs including tents, sleeping bags and food, the students successfully navigated themselves from Nargakot to Shivapuri using both navigation apps and old fashioned maps and compasses. They showed great resilience and adaptability over the course of the expedition and all managed to pass this component of the award.
