Six students from ConnellÂ completed their Duke of Edinburgh GoldÂ Qualifying Expedition in the sweltering heat this summer. Despite temperatures of over 32 degrees, they managed to navigate their way successfully around the Ullswater region of the Lake District. This was in stark contrast to their practice walk which was in snow and their practice expedition in the rain.
This year’s team is comprised ofÂ Maribelle Caplin, Gan Sripaithun,Â Bushra Moqbel, Andrew Lees, Danielle BlackwoodÂ and Kian Mullen. Congratulations to them; they are one step closer to completing their award.
They will be delivering a short presentation about the aim of theirÂ experience on Wednesday 3rd October at 4:10 in Rm 1.18. Staff and students are welcome to attend.
