Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award Success

Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award Success

 

In the Spring Term of 2017, two pupils from last year’s S6, Lucy Stewart and Vivek Koname, attended Assembly to collect their Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award badges.

The DofE has a positive impact on young people’s lives in terms of their personal development and employability, and on wider society (charities gain active and engaged volunteers, businesses hire work-ready recruits).The Gold Award encompasses various task areas which participants must complete: Volunteering (12 months), Physical and Skills (one section for 12 months and the other section for 6), Expedition (4 days/3 nights), Residential section (undertake a shared activity in a residential setting away from home for 5 days and 4 nights). Well done Lucy and Vivek!
