ten tors weekend

This is Ten Tors weekend on Dartmoor – the actual event, not the training. Unfortunately, for the second year running, I’m not going to be there to support our various school teams as they make their way across the moor for 35, 45 or 55 miles (with their huge rucksacks!) because it clashes with the SouthBank Arts Trail weekend. I’ve got to know the participating students pretty well over the past few months and have been hugely impressed by their attitude, determination and humour. If anyone wants to criticise the “youth of today”, I’ll introduce you to any of our students and they couldn’t fail to be impressed by them.
Quite humbling stuff and a real privilege to work with them!
