Bangor Grammar School

CCF NNAS Bronze Award

In September several Year 13 and 14 cadets from the army section completed their National Navigation Award Scheme Bronze Award. Normally this would be completed as part of their APCA syllabus but Covid restrictions had prevented this from happening.

Saturday was spent in school covering the theory of navigation including orientating a map, handrailing, measuring distance and the use of a compass.  The cadets then prepared a route card to follow for the practical assessment.

The practical took place on the Sunday at Crawfordsburn Country Park.  The planned routes took the cadets along the beach to Grey Point and up through the forest to the waterfall.  All the cadets passed their assessment.
