Students spend two days on camping expedition to Rutland
Public Services students showed they could cope in the great outdoors when they went on a two-day camping trip to Rutland.
The expedition took place on September 11th and 12th and included an overnight stay at the Duke of Edinburgh campsite at Wing in Rutland.
The students walked to the campsite and cooked for themselves during their stay.
Teacher James Aston, who ran the trip, said: “The students walked 24km over two days, from Rockingham to Belton-in-Rutland and then on the second day from Wing to Gretton.
“The students had to cook at the campsite on Trangias (portable stoves) and camp overnight to pass the course.
“They needed to have good map and compass skills and take it in turns to lead the group.
“The students learnt a few lessons while on the trip, including to not run from cows as they merely run with you.”
