Last Friday 5 students and 2 teachers headed off to Dracophyllum Flats in Arthurs Pass as part of The Duke of Edinburgh training.  We tramped by moonlight using the stars as our navigation tool, learnt survival and leadership skills and had some amazing views of The Southern Alps.

Despite cold weather and the possibility of snow, we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

A big thank you to Mr Smythe and Mrs Heinz for making the weekend possible and for the many hours of preparation.
