Students have taken part in the Duke of Edinburgh awards for the first time in school history. Youngsters from Years 9, 10 and 11 took on the challenge which culminated in an expedition at Rendlesham Forest in Suffolk. They have now gained bronze awards after the event on June 24th and 25th which saw some students don green alien costumes in theme with the rumour of an alien landing at the site in the 80s.
Mrs Champion, the Duke of Edinburgh co-ordinator, said:
“Manningtree High School embarked on a new adventure of the Duke of Edinburgh kind. The group embraced the award enthusiastically, with students racing to get their service and skills sections completed in preparation for their final challenge—the expedition.”
