RGS Gold canoe expeditions Summer 2014

Two pioneering canoe groups from Reigate Grammar took an adventurous journey down the River Wye and Severn for their Gold canoe training and qualifying expeditions.  They found it rewarding and challenging, on one occasion paddling over 45km in one day! They became a superb team together and the photos show what a great adventure they had.  Well done all and I hope this encourages others to take up the amazing opportunity of canoeing for their DofE award scheme which is available as an expedition option for Bronze, Silver and Gold award groups.

RGS Bronze and Silver students embarked on expeditions on an exceptionally cold and wet May 24. The canoe group of 8 completed training on the Basingstoke Canal and camped at Mytchett.   20 4th year students completed Bronze expeditions locally. All groups did well to cope with the bad weather on Friday.
