A Message from the Senior Leadership Team

Kepler Track - Duke of Edinburgh Expedition

It was a case of nearly but not quite for the 14 boys who set off to conquer the Kepler Track last Saturday. We eventually made it to two of the three overnight stops but unfortunately, a track closure due to large volumes of snow and avalanche conditions meant we were unable to complete the Luxmore to Iris Burn section of the track.
