IA trip to Fraser
Oct 25, 2018
On September 27th a group of 17 learners embarked on their Qualifying Expedition for their Duke of Edinburgh International Bronze Award.They camped overnight in a local field in Bukit Fraser, prepared their meals over a camping stove and hiked for six hours each day. The Bronze Award participants followed a route that they had preplanned using a map and GPS on the first day, and then only a compass and a map on the second.In groups of 4 - 6 members, the learners carried all their camping gear, food and clothes with them so that they could survive independently in an unfamiliar environment. During this time, they overcame fears, ventured beyond comfort zones, learnt to work with each other, became physically and mentally stronger and succeeded in becoming champions by passing all the requirements for the Bronze Award Adventurous Journey.
