MJ Silver expeditions completed

  • Secondary News

The sunshine of the summer departed as 12 students set off from Gerardmer in The Vosges for the final expedition of the Merite Jeunesse season.

The students from Years 11 and 12 completed the three-day hike faced with some difficult weather conditions and terrain. The two groups demonstrated excellent navigation and camp-craft skills to complete this aspect of the programme.

All previous expeditions for the group had been in Luxembourg so the change to The Vosges introduced a new set of challenges. The students were determined and overcame the challenges which gave them an immense feeling of pride. Well done MJ Silver cohort 2021/22.

Anyone interested in the Merite Jeunesse programme can get information and sign up this week. Places are limited and age restrictions apply. Please see Mr Roberts or Mrs Bolhius.
