Inaugral Duke of Edinbugh Awards Expedition
Tue, 14 Jun 2016
On a very wet Saturday morning in May 5 intrepid pupils and some hardy staff set out to complete the first ever Springfield School Duke of Edinburgh Awards expedition. In the capable hands of charity Adventure Plus the adventurers set off for a 2 day canoeing trip down the River Thames from Lechlade to Radcot Bridge, stopping overnight to camp.
The weather steadily improved, as did the canoeing.
All in all, it was a very successful first trip. Our thanks go to Adventure Plus whose expertise made the expedition possible and to the Duke of Edinburgh Awards scheme who have been incredibly supportive. We hope this will be the first of many expeditions!
