“I’ve been trying to get a Gold expedition off the ground at OIS for four years and finally we had our first expedition in October 2014 in the Gredos Mountains, Spain. It was a memorable experience and the students will have learnt so much about themselves. They experienced a real wilderness adventure in the mountains and dealt with difficult group dynamics in adverse weather conditions. When they’re as old as I am, they might have forgotten some of the people they were in school with or many of their teachers and experiences they had. One thing they will never forget, is their Gold adventure in the Gredos mountains. Raul, Maria, Luisa, João Proença, João Calem, Eduardo and Afonso were a credit to themselves, their families and our School.” ‘2015
