Silver Duke of Edinburgh
Over the weekend of September 22-23, a group of 11 S4/5/6 Tarbert pupils took part in the silver Duke of Edinburgh award expedition.
They were joined by four participants from Lochgilphead.
They walked along a route in Mid Argyll that they had planned and camped for two nights. Those who completed the expedition did well coping with map-reading, team work, camping and walking.
At this stage there is adult supervision, especially as it was a practice expedition. When they take part in their qualifying expedition next summer they will have undergone more training to enable them to be supervised less.
In the meantime they are completing various other sections of their silver award.
