A group of Secondary students took part in a three day, two night walk over the weekend as part of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

The pupils walked from the school in Pegia to the new school building on Tombs of the Kings Avenue … via villages including Tsada, Episkopi and Chloraka.

Students completed the walk, which was thought to be around 30km in total, independently.

This means that they planned their own route, cooked their own food and carried all equipment.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award enables students to learn practical skills that are valuable to their personal and professional development.

The Award is comprised of three levels and four sections, with the latest walk being part of the students’ silver award.

Well done to everyone who took part for showing great enthusiasm and maturity.
