Four King’s Ely International students have completed their Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Qualifying Expedition.
The team of Year 13 students - Ching-Han Chiang, Chun Kei Chow, Eugenia Tsang and Tsz Chun Tsang – successfully completed the expedition in the Peak District.
Starting near the village of Hathersage, the students spent four days travelling the Dark Peak finishing at Tintwhistle, east of Manchester.
Altogether, they walked over 60 kilometres and camped at three remote sites.
Martin Bray, assistant director of outdoor education at King’s Ely Senior, said: “The weather was clear and bright for the first two days with some cloud and rain on the last two days to bring some trickier navigation challenges, but they coped admirably with route finding and the conditions underfoot.
