Duke of Edinburgh
Last Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd, the group of students from Bellver International College participating in the Duke of Edinburgh course, participated in an adventurous practice expedition as part of the program. The seven bronze and silver participants set off for an incredible excursion after several weeks of training, learning map reading and orientation skills, as well as lessons on first aid.
The aim was to start from the cemetery of Deià, walk until the next village, Sóller, beyond to Biniaraix and sleep out in the open in a camping site under the beautiful stars, where the students proved their skills by successfully putting up their tents, building their own fire and cooking their own meals. It was without a doubt an unforgettable experience for them.
Refreshed and ready for the next day, the bellverians set-off with determination to reach their final objective: The Cúber Reservoir. The students had a lot of fun exploring the pathways and climbing those hills to admire the beautiful views at the top. Despite the heavy bags they all had to carry throughout the whole journey which contained the essentials for their expedition, they finally reached their destination, and the Duke of Edinburgh candidates were with no doubt tired, but also happy for reaching their goal. They are now currently preparing for their next expedition predicted to be about June, which will be their qualifying expedition, and this times their abilities, skills and teamwork will be tested again.
