15/02/13 - Mourne Mountain Adventure 2013
Some of our Year 11 Duke of Edinburgh Award students have been invited to participate in the Mourne Mountain Adventure on the 26th-27th April 2013.
This event is a mass youth challenge and has been organised through, and supported by, Newry and Mourne Council, volunteer organisations and the uniformed and emergency services.
In preparation, a Briefing Day was attended by 10 pupils from Year 11, Derek and Mr Chambers, on 10th February 2013 at Castle Ward, County Down.
Here the pupils got the opportunity to learn more about the Challenge itself and were able to engage in some group work, such as first aid, archery and abseiling.
This preparation was thoroughly enjoyed by all; even though it was a little cold and wet!
