So, I thought I should probably share some photos with you from the very exciting weekend that we had with our guests from the Duke of Edinburgh/International Award Office in the UK. Can’t believe that we are now the first people and first licensed Independent operators of the International Award here in Georgia. So exciting!!! And we have our first formal meeting on Saturday to discuss our many plans for the future, so watch this space!!!
Pre course: all ready for the 24 participants to arrive!
Sunday activity, looking for control points, marking them off, then answering the questions to test our knowledge from the training course:
