Compass Learning Centre has been offered the opportunity to join Westfield School, Weymouth, on their organised training walks for the Jubilee Challenge, and the Jubilee Challenge walk itself, which happens on Dartmoor each year, over a weekend in May.
This will be led by Westfield staff and students, and supported by Compass staff. The walks are used as training and assessment for the Jubilee Challenge walk and camp in Dartmoor, and are challenging in both distance and terrain to test the students ability and help them to improve over time. Walks will start from 8 miles in a day and increase to 15 over time. The first walk is on Friday 6 October with the actual event taking place on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 May, for those that are able to manage the challenge. The health benefits gained from completing these walks will be fantastic. We will make use of the incredible Dorset countryside for the training walks including from Ringstead beach, The White Horse, Osmington Mills, Lulworth, Redcliff, Portland and White Nothe.
The Jubilee Challenge is set up to allow students with additional need access similar opportunities to Ten Tors that may be unachievable for some. Please see further information on the link below.
