The day was designed to test their navigation skills and although it was very muddy and slippery, it was enjoyed by all! One of the students, George Descaillaux told us about the day.

"During our expedition, we had to tackle lots of muddy situations, which challenged our team work skills and initiative. The walk lasted for a few hours, before we returned to College tired and wet! Before we set off on the walk, we were taught how to prepare correctly for any conditions which we may experience; such as challenging weather conditions and terrain. The expedition provided evidence for a section of our coursework and taught us useful navigational skills, such as taking bearings and reading a map. Although the weather wasn’t ideal, the day was incredibly fun and informative!"
