The Downs School DAS vs  NNAS Navigation assessment

Venue: Away

A successful assessment for all so we are very pleased to be able to award everyone with the Bronze Level NNAS (National Navigation Award Scheme) award . This includes general map work such as understanding scales, recognising symbols, understanding contours, orientating the map against major ground features and against a compass needle, following handrails and use of catching features when navigating. Also calculating and measuring short distances, estimating time a distance will take and recognising prominent features on a map. They also consider safety and preparedness when in the hills. Many congratulations to all and happy, safe hiking!
