International Award - Silver Practice Journey

In the weekend of 26 and 27 September, sixteen brave students and four of their supervisors went on a short hike in the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen. This is a beautiful area, a nature reserve but also where the drinking water of Amsterdam is being filtered. It is known for the may deer that can be spotted there as well.

But why were these students so brave? Well, because they just kept on doing their volunteer work, practicing their skills and kept on exercising their sports during Corona-time. Or they were inventive enough to look for alternatives that would apply to the situation. And because they were determent to go on the hike, although the weather forecast was just horrible.

Good to know that weather is always better when you actually in it: outside. Both days turned out to be dry and sunny. During night time we had to endure pouring rain and stormy wind, but our little tents kept us dry anyways.

All in all, it was a really good experience that shaped up students’ resilience, and all proved to be ready to go on their Final journey in the German Eifel district, hopefully in spring 2021.

We wish the Bronze students, doing their final journey in the weekend of 3 and 4 October all the best!
