Hiking pupils gain bronze award
- Credit: supplied
AN EXPEDITION across the Mendip Hills was completed by 33 students from St Katherine’s School in Pill.
The year 10 pupils took part in the hike as part of their work toward their bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Setting off from Litton, many of the teenagers got a drenching when heavy rain poured down on them while hiking to Rodney Stoke.
When they arrived at their campsite, they put up their tents, cooked an evening meal and enjoyed some games before getting some sleep.
The following day they dismantled their camp before heading off over the Mendips toward Cheddar, Axbridge and finishing at Winscombe.
