Sil­ver Duke of Ed­in­burgh

Argyllshire Advertiser - - DISTRICT NEWS -

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.
