At the beginning of half term, four groups of sixth form students successfully completed their DofE Practice Expedition in the Black Mountains.

Image Description

9th November 2021 — Starting in Tretower near Crickhowell the groups followed a varied route taking in Llangors Lake, Twmpa, Llanthony Priory and Sugar Loaf before finishing on the outskirts of Abergavenny.

The pupils walked and camped really well despite facing some challenging weather and, as a result of recent COVID-19 restrictions and limited expedition opportunities, having less experience than is usual for pupils completing this expedition.

Thank you to Mr Smyth for organising the expedition and to Miss Wilson, Mr Musto and Mr Davies for all of their help.
