Ross High School Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award practice expedition took place this last week over three days. As a group paddling sea kayaks they went exploring Loch Lomond. In some particularly tricky weather conditions all pupils equipped themselves very well.
On this expedition the Outdoor Learning Service were fortunate to have the support of two staff members of Preston Lodge High School – Brian and Anne. The pupils marvelled at how well they packed their boats and realised how important all those little luxuries that can be taken sea kayaking are.
No trip to Loch Lomond is complete without a visit tro Inchconnachan where a fair few Wallabies live and thrive. There were some unbelievers amongst the group initially until we went Wallaby spotting on one of our evening camps.
Well sone to all pupils and they now have time to plan and prepare for their assessed expedition in June 2011
