Duke Of Edinburgh Achievements



Duke of Edinburgh Award students were recognised for their hard work and determination in a Presentation Evening at the Town Hall on Wednesday 28th November.  Students from year 11 and 12 have been working all year in order to complete a number of challenges set out by the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. The DofE Award is made up of 4 sections; Volunteering, Physical Recreation, Skills and Expedition.  Students are required to spend a certain amount of time completing activities in each of the sections, culminating in a camping and walking expedition. 


Our 9 year 13 Gold Award Students made a particularly good impression whilst comple

ting their asessed expedition in September over in Llangurig, mid Wales. They spend 4 days 3 nights treking in challenging conditions and camping at Wild Campsites. Each day the students covered between 18 - 24 kilometers with their personal belongings and camping equipment on their back. The DofE Assessors made particular comment about the students leadership and camaraderie with each other, saying throughout the week they really worked with and for each other.
