Year 11 Duke of Edinburgh Awards

Year 11 Students have been working hard to complete their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Awards. Students have to partake in a minimum 6 month programme which includes participation in the following areas:

- The physical section looks at their commitment to a physical activity over a period of time for their benefit of their health and general fitness.

- The skills section focuses on the development or enhancement of a creative skill they have developed over time such as playing a musical instrument.

- The volunteering section requires students to commit to a longer period of time working for a non for profit organization and helping and assisting with the day to day chores.

Students have also completed an expedition in which they planned, navigated, and walked for a period of 2 days with one overnight camp. This has been a very worthwhile experience for all those involved, highly regarded by colleges and universities,  and one I hope they will remember for many years to come.
