Duke of Ed Bronze Qualifying Hike

31 students from BJH completed the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Bronze Qualifying hike June 4-5 and June 18-19. They were accompanied by 10 Waterford Valley High students who were completing their practice hike for their Gold and Silver Awards. We were also joined by a student from Fatima Academy and one from Holy Spirit High. The students left from Bauline East on Saturday and were picked up in Admirals Cove on Sunday, hiking a total of 20Km over the two days. Thank you to Mr. Foran, Ms. Genge, and Ms Brooker for offering this opportunity to our students.
