Wishing all our boys (Y7 through to Y10) taking part in the Enfield Schools Athletics championship Finals at Lee Valley Athletics Centre today, the best of luck – Go EGS!
This was the final section of the DofE Bronze Award that our Year 10s have been participating in since last October.
Several months of volunteering, learning a new skill and taking on a physical activity, combined with preparation sessions in school on navigating, map reading, first aid, outdoor cooking, how to pack a rucksack and 3 practice hikes all led to the final challenge of the expedition.
We are delighted to say that all our boys passed this section!
Having not run the DofE programme in EGS for several years, it has been wonderful to get it up and running again, giving our boys the opportunity of challenging themselves, learning to work as a team and getting a huge sense of achievement.
3 days of tough competition and racing in the heat on Friday took him through from the semi-final to the finals.
Tuesday’s game cancelled.
Wednesday game start time changed to 1.
Well done Year 8!
