Pupils receiving their bronze DofE award have completed a physical, skills and volunteering section of the award scheme; undertaking number of activities ranging from cookery, cycling, horse riding and assisting elderly neighbours to playing musical instruments, working in charity shops and cafes.
Our DofE Coordinator Mr Garvie shared a number of successes this week, with the following pupils having achieved their bronze DofE awards:
Zaid, Year 11
Jonny, Year 11
Eleanor, Year 11
Ruiying, Year 10
Pupils also undertook a practice and assessed expedition in the local area. Ordinarily pupils would camp out, but due to Covid this wasn’t possible. However, each expedition was over two days, during which time they had to spend six hours out on the ground, walking anywhere between 16 to 19Km.
Next week Kia and Benjamin from Year 11 are also due to receive their bronze award.
Encouraging confidence and resilience is all part of participating in DofE, challenging pupils physically as well as mentally. The awards are testament to the hard work and achievement of all those taking part.
