A dedicated group of Year 10 students undertook their expedition for their Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award at the end of June. The weather was kind, even perhaps a bit hot? But they were resilient and completed three day treks and two nights camping at Poole Bridge campsite near Porlock enjoying campfire food and fun.
We are also delighted to confirm that our students donated an amazing 1144 hours of voluntary service between April 202 and March 2021 as a result of their commitment to the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme at Bronze and Silver levels. The social value of these hours is over £5000!
Well done to everyone who has taken part in either the Bronze or Silver Award and, of course, a massive thank you to Mrs Clark who supports each and every one of them and to the team of volunteers who in turn, support Mrs Clark.
We are hugely proud of our school’s involvement in DofE and believe it builds confidence and resilience as well as providing an opportunity to be responsible, compassionate and reflective.
