Students Prepare For Duke of Edinburgh Expedition
Year 10 Hope Valley College students recently took part in their practice expedition as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award.
The trek was preparation for the final expedition that students will be required to plan and execute themselves at the conclusion of the Award. It must include a 15 mile walk and overnight camp, with all participants having to be totally self-reliant, carrying all their equipment and food including setting up camp without supervision.
Pathways Students Make Big Splash in Swimathon
Students from Hope Valley College's Pathways Post-16 Centre recently took part in the Marie Currie Swimathon, raising £250 for charity.
Two teams of students and staff participated in the event at Hathersage's open air swimming pool last month, with participants covering more than 5km during the hour long swim. Each team had committed to raising £50 each in sponsorship, smashing their combined target by £150.
Students Take Walk of Faith
Year 8 students from Hope Valley College recently participated in a Faith Walk, visiting a number of places of worship in Sheffield.
The students visited the Medina Mosque in Abbeydale, Sheffield Cathedral and one of the city's two Buddhist centres as part of their Ethics and Philosophy studies. The trip aimed to further engage and inform the students about the religions they have been studying during their classes.
