Eleven Greensward students are busy raising funds to support their World Challenge Expedition in 2014 to Mexico and Belize.  The team will be able to experience dramatic scenery during the trekking phases, embrace local culture whilst working on the project, and witness incredible Aztec and Mayan monuments.  They will be undertaking rewarding work with rural communities as well as enjoying some fantastic trekking. 

On 2 and 3 November they took part in a weekend expedition in Hemel Hempstead which provided a great opportunity to learn a little more about participating in an expedition. The students along with Miss Winter, Mrs Heckles and Mr Aitken camped out in very wet conditions and students experienced cooking on a tranger and hiking with rucksacks nearly as big as they were! Students also learnt the importance of teamwork when dealing with emergency scenarios and losing team members.
