Students and Staff attended the World Challenge Expedition Training Weekend at Hexham in preparation for their four week expedition to Madagascar in Summer 2015.
For the 31 students and four teachers it was a great opportunity for the team to continue to develop key skills.
The aims of the 2 day course are to develop their ability to work as a team, explore Expedition team roles, understand how to remain healthy on Expedition, prepare camp food successfully, general camp craft awareness and safety equipment familiarisation.
They undertook a number of interesting tasks, led by a World Challenge Group Leader, over the two days to gain knowledge in all of these areas. They were extremely keen and all found it a worthwhile weekend.
They were a credit to themselves and KEVI. The World Challenge Leaders stated that they were all responsive to information given, looked after each other, learned an awful lot and above all enjoyed themselves. Roll on Madagascar Summer 2015!
