Nine students from our Adventure Sports and Food Technology courses are heading to Poland to explore the Tatra mountains, with the aim to climb the highest peak Rysy at 2503m.
This expedition will enable the students to complete their Gold Duke of Edinburgh award. The group will walk for four days, staying in mountain huts and journeying over wild terrain. They will also complete their John Muir Award focusing on discovering, exploring, conserving and sharing experiences of wild places.
Finally, the group will visit Auschwitz for a period of personal reflection and take a cultural city tour of Krakrow.
Dave Glover, Level 3 Extended Diploma Adventure Sports student commented that “Poland will be an amazing experience, not only to explore a new country but also discover new wild places. I am particularly looking forward to sleeping in a mountain hut as we spent five nights camping in the Lake District on our trading expedition and it was a great experience”.
