Edinburgh outdoor adventure tour

The Duke of Edinburgh International Award is a globally recognized international award for young people. The goal of the award is to help young people gain the ability to lead a successful life, encourage young people aged 14 to 24 to participate in social activities, develop hobbies, and be enthusiastic about helping others. It is mainly composed of four different parts: volunteer service, physical exercise, skills and outdoor adventures. Our school is the first school in China to join this award and authorized to issue awards.

In this colorful season, the three-day and two-night outdoor adventure journey of twenty students has officially started. Our school cooperates with a professional outdoor activity company-Beijing Dongfang Xinsen International Technology and Trade Co., Ltd., so that every student can participate in team activities, challenge themselves, and complete outdoor adventures.

On the first day, the teams were divided into groups. Each team had a team name, drew a team flag, and then played game at the Great Wall. The team members completed the activities in the scenic spot according to the APP guidelines. Many projects in the event cannot be completed by one person, and the team’s cooperation is the key to the completion of the project. Every time they came to a spot, they took photos, uploaded photos according to the tasks assigned by the competition. All team members work together with passion.

On the second day, the coach taught the students a variety of rope knotting methods, single eight knots, double eight knots, fixed knots, etc. These knotting methods are very practical when doing rock climbing, traction and other activities outdoors. It is easy to untie. The students are very attentive to follow the trainer to learn to tie knots, fearing to miss every detail. Then the coach explained the dam downhill equipment and led the students to perform the dam downhill. At first, the students were a little timid, but with the encouragement of the trainer, the first student was eager to try, and then the other students bravely took the first step to break through psychological barriers.

On the third day, the coach explained first aid knowledge to the students with his years of work experience, popularized basic theoretical knowledge such as why first aid and how to do first aid, explained CPR (cardiac resuscitation) and basic dressing methods, and how to treat wounds.

This is not a simple outdoor adventure, but a process of experiential learning. We can build stronger confidence, cultivate teamwork spirit and communication skills, and enhance understanding and understanding between people.
