Dear Parents,

You Son or Daughter should now have received or will do shortly their log in details for the Duke of Edinburghs Award website EDofE (Found at  https://www.edofe.org/) This email will be sent to their school account so we would ask you to remind them to check this. It would also be wise to update this email via their online profile to one they will check like their own personal email so any messages are seen and acted upon.

If we are still awaiting deposits log in details will not be sent until these are received

Guidance for how to update their sections on EDofE can be found on the School website  via the parents link and outdoor education http://www.bohunt.hants.sch.uk/faculty-areas/it-computing/outdoor-education/

Look at the getting started menu and there are a series of videos that explain what to do.

Students are able to continue activities they have been doing already so if for example they wish to use piano playing as their skill and they have been taking lessons since year 7 then this would be ok. Regarding assessors the rules are they must be over 18 and not a close relative, music tutors, class tutors and teachers at school can all be used but students must ask them in advance.

Training

Training will begin now  in March.  We will confirm  the  schedule once we have all teams formed and teams have chosed thier training day. Training will be on an Wednesday or Thursday evening after School, and there will be 1 or 2 sessions per month as required. Most sessions will be from 3.30pm to 4.30pm, however the two mapping sessions will be 3.30pm to 6.30pm.

Teamforming and afterschool training day .

2015 Big Expeditions  to Greenland and Kyrgyzstan

42 intrepid explorers from Bohunt School in Hampshire returned in August 2015  from their unforgettable journeys to Greenland or Kyrgyzstan with stories of polar bear dens, camping on glaciers, crazy Kyrgy markets and lost guides. This was a once in a lifetime experience for the four teams of 14 – 16 year olds; three of the teams went to Kyrgyzstan where they were focused on teaching nomadic herders to speak English and trekking in the remote peaks, whilst one team went to Ammassalik Island on the east coast of Greenland to do scientific research for CERN in the wilderness.

Following programme launch and candidate selection by written application and interview the chosen students faced numerous challenges over the 21 month lead-in, including training sessions in appalling weather in the Lake District in March and fundraising over £3000 each to fund their trip. The money was raised in a variety of ways, for example organised events with guest speakers, gig nights, hosting the Kendal Adventure Film Festival, busking and selling cakes – every penny helped!

Shaf Hansraj Head of Outdoor Education at Bohunt and a teacher on the Kyrgyzstan expedition said:

“At every stage of the expedition the students in my team never failed to impress and I speak for all the staff involved when I say how proud we were of the students, whether they were overcoming the challenges of language and culture or the big physical challenges of trekking at altitude. The students resilience and humour carried them through this expedition in an environment which would challenge even seasoned travels much older than them.”

Neil Strowger, Headteacher of Bohunt School, said:

The conditions and the financial commitments have proved really challenging to the students. However, their determination, their positive attitude and our high expectations of them have meant that they have had incredible experiences in the Arctic or Kyrgyzstan. These expeditions have given our students a chance to develop their resilience and resourcefulness. They are now confident leaders who stand out.

Aims of The Big Expeditions:

  • Once in a lifetime opportunity to visit unique, remote and pioneering locations.
  • Social and technical skills development.
  • Student  responsibility, resilience and independence development.
  • Learning about other cultures, peoples  and the environment.
  • Enterprise skills development.
  • Personal and team challenges.
  • Involvement in scientific research with leading organisations.
  • Participation in local community development projects
  • Adventure and having an amazing experience.
  • To Explore, to Dream, to Discover.

2017 Big Expeditions

In 2017 Bohunt School are looking to send one team to Greenland, two teams to Kyrgyzstan and three teams to Mongolia

More ideas for Expedition Aims ( Note not all apply to Bronze level)

Remember that Teams will need an aim to thier Expedition. This will be something they start looking at before you go and complete while they are away.

There is a section at the top of the Expedition Route Card to fill in the Expedition Aim, and on the reverse of the sheet is space to write the activity plan.

Bear in mind when route planning and completing the timings on the Route Cards, Teams are expected to be on Expedition a minimum 6 hours per day. A minimum of 3 hours must be journeying ( walking), the rest being spent on aim work, rest breaks, lunch etc.)
